The upcoming European Chatbot & Conversational AI Summit 2024

December 12, 2023

The European Chatbot & Conversational AI Summit 2024 is set to take place in Edinburgh, Scotland, on March 12 to 14, 2024. 

It’s the fourth Chatbot & Conversational AI Summit, with the 2023 event proving ideally timed to capitalize on the industry’s immense growth this year. 

The chatbot and conversational AI sector has grown beyond all forecasts, with European startups like France’s Mistral and Germany’s Aleph Alpha both raising approximately $500 million in recent weeks. 

In fact, the European tech ecosystem’s growth outpaced the US and Asia in 2021, and the EU’s AI Act – which will be a topic of much debate at the conference – sets the scene for AI R&D both across the EU and further afield. 

2024 promises exciting advancements in chatbot and conversational AI technology, with the recent release of GPT-4V and Google Gemini. We can expect Gemini Ultra – Google’s answer to GPT-4 – and potentially GPT-4.5 or GPT-5 – to be released next year. 

The European Chatbot & Conversational AI Summit 2024 extends into all aspects of conversational AI, generative AI, ChatGPT, large language models (LLMs), natural language processing (NLP), and chatbot technologies. 

There are fewer hotter technologies right now, so this is sure to be a captivating event positioned at the cutting edge of the industry. 

With talks and breakout sessions with top experts, exclusive workshops, and networking opportunities, the summit is ideal for business leaders, policymakers, researchers, students, or anyone looking to explore chatbots and conversational AI and make connections in the sector.
