Featuring over 400 events during the seven-day festival, London Tech Week attracts over 43,000 visitors interested in knowing more about the latest technology that the city has to offer. Launched by Boris Johnson in 2014, Tech Week has become the biggest technology festival in Europe and is an important forum for the tech community to gather to learn all about the current technological advances within the digital sphere. With speakers, seminars, tech demonstrations and even a Robot Party taking place during last year’s festival, this year’s event promises to be even bigger and better. If you’re interested in any type of tech, whether it be digital advances in music, art or fashion or more tangible tech products, come and check out this growing festival.
London Technology Week will take place from 12th to 16th June 2017. The festival is made up of over 400 events which take place across the capital at key venues like the Gherkin and the ExCeL centre as well as smaller, more intimate locations. To find out more about which events are happening where and to sign up for all the latest news updates on the Tech Week events, head to the official website here.
While you’ll get the opportunity to meet the giants of the global tech industry during the festival, London Tech Week is also known as a place which welcomes emerging tech start-ups and those willing to break away from tradition. One of the key highlights of last year’s event was the showcase of developments in the fashion sector and it’s sure to be a favourite this year too. Be amazed at 3D printed wearable clothes, ponder over whether real-life models will be a thing of the past while you witness the latest holographic mannequins and check out how the clothes of the future will allow you to play music via built-in sensors.
