Thousands of entrepreneurs, investors and developers will attend more than 70 business-to-business events from Old Street to Croydon from 16-20 June, as part of London Technology Week.

The events will range from large international conferences, showcasing workshops, face-to-face investor meetings, idea-pitching competitions and innovative hackathons.

For business networking opportunities, Enterprise Europe Network will host TechMatch, an event that gives small and medium-sized tech businesses the opportunity to meet with some of Europe’s most influential companies in digital marketing, eCommerce, social media, cloud computing services and mobile.

The event is being organised by UBM Live, in association with London & Partners – the Mayor’s official promotional organisation for London, ExCeL London and Tech London Advocates.

One of the biggest events will be Internet World, taking place from 17-19 June at ExCeL London for up to 10,000 marketing and development professionals, IT specialists, developers and technical experts. This event will also feature the Big Data Show and the first European edition of international IT event Interop.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: "London’s first ever Technology Week will showcase London’s role as the digital capital of Europe, with a range of innovative businesses now calling the city their home, attracting both significant investment and some of the best and brightest talent on the planet.

"Throughout the week tens of thousands of the industry’s top tech professionals will flock here to share brilliant new ideas, build business relationships and help cement London’s position as a top global tech hub."

Gordon Innes, chief executive of London & Partners, said: "London is home to some of the world’s most innovative and creative technology businesses. Since between 2010 and 2013 more than 340 tech companies in the capital have attracted investment of over £1.47bn to the city, and with more than 155,600 digital tech employees working across London, tech is becoming as important a part of the city’s economic infrastructure as banking or tourism.

"London Technology Week is the best way to shine a light on this thriving industry, getting us to showcase the talent we have in the city on a global stage," highlighted Innes.
