London is Europe’s undisputed technology capital, its tech sector employs nearly 200,000 people and contributes £18bn to the UK economy in 2015. We co-founded London Technology Week in 2014 to promote and build on this extraordinary success.

The annual June event draws together global brands such as Bloomberg and Accenture, home-grown successes including Funding Circle and thousands of tech enthusiasts to network and learn at demonstrations, workshops, debates, meetups and parties. Topics run from adtech and the internet of things to edtech, food, gaming, medtech, intelligent buildings and smart cities.

London Technology Week 2017 is set to be bigger and better than ever, with London & Partners announcing a new partnership with leading global events provider KNect365, part of Informa PLC. The new partnership will take Europe’s largest tech event to the next level, offering a wider range of events than previous years, including a new series of six major events at the ExCeL and a concert to celebrate the week.

We could not have done this without the help of London & Partners.
