London & Partners has a unique, holistic view of all London’s sectors. We spotted this emerging trend, recognised the gap in the London landscape and created a compelling solution in the form of a buzzy workspace.

How we do it
We know that London has the potential to reap huge rewards from the global traveltech industry, generating the lion’s share of jobs and revenues. So we partnered with workspace experts The Trampery to give the sector’s emerging stars a home in our London offices. HRH Duke of York launched our Traveltech Lab in spring 2015.
- Our 30-desk Traveltech Lab is exclusively dedicated to early-stage tech companies developing solutions for the travel industry
- Companies are breaking boundaries in every aspect of travel from virtual reality apps to cultural exchange platforms
- Our expertise in London’s travel sector, our global connections and our unique understanding of London’s tech cluster are all on hand to support the start-ups
- For example having taken up space, Lulutrip kick-started its London operation by joining our tourism partnership scheme, giving it access to global promotion, industry insights, events and networking
Financial and operational success
- We needed to make sure that this initiative was backed by the best and financially sustainable
- We have secured commercial partners for the Traveltech Lab: Sabre, Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority and IBS
- We chose to establish the Traveltech Lab with The Trampery: the social enterprise has a proven track record in operating successful spaces in Shoreditch, London Fields and Hackney Wick
