30,000+ Expected Delegates for London Tech Week
London Technology Week organisers are expecting to host more than 30,000 people at over 100 separate events between 16-20 June, London & Partners recently announced.
The announcement comes as the Cities of Opportunity Index from professional services firm, PwC, said that London is “technologically on the top of its game.” The report also listed London as the world leader in economic influence, technology access, reputation as an urban gateway, and its development and design capabilities. The UK capital claimed the number one position ahead of New York, Singapore, Toronto, and San Francisco, improving on its third-place position in PwC’s 2013 index.
London is now the biggest technology cluster in Europe with emerging start-ups setting up alongside global powerhouse brands such as Facebook, Twitter and Google.
Barbara Jamison, Head of Business Development Europe for London & Partners said: “London’s technology credentials are unrivalled right now in Europe. Tech City now spans the entire capital and with that comes ready access to some of the world’s most inspirational tech speakers, the opportunity to embed cutting-edge technology into your events, as well as a vital pool of potential sponsors on the doorstep. London Technology Week is a fantastic new event in our annual calendar and we hope that event planners around the world will be excited by the potential of London and inspired to bring their events to our city.”
London Technology Week is organised by UBM Live, in association with London & Partners - the Mayor’s official organisation for London - ExCeL London and Tech London Advocates.
