In less than 2 weeks time the global tech community will converge on London for the second London Technology Week – a festival of tech events that spans the entire city. This is an unparalleled opportunity for learning, networking and knowledge sharing.
Nowhere else will you find such an exciting convergence of big brands and start-ups, funding, political backing and talent. Programmers, cutting edge creative thinkers, data scientists, educational innovators, financiers and marketers from across the world are fusing together, harnessing London’s resources to grow their ideas, and helping to cement London’s position as a world leader in tech innovation.
The city is a hotbed of new technologies and applications, with thriving companies specialising in fin-tech, med-tech, fashion tech, ad-tech, video games, SaaS and many more. These industries benefit from the proximity of London’s finance, creative industries and life sciences clusters, and the brightest minds coming out of the city’s leading universities and professionals flocking to the UK capital from all over the world.
London is a magnet for visitors from all over the world. With over 70 cuisines, 3 of 5 of the world’s top museums, free attractions and a fast-paced night-life, it’s no wonder London was ranked the world’s third most popular destination in the 2014 Travellers’ Choice Awards.
