London is back on the global technology innovation map.
For so long Silicon Valley in California, Israel's Silicon Wadi and the hot-house R&D centers of Japan, South Korea and China dominated the technology startup scene, but in recent years the UK capital has attracted technology talent, entrepreneurs, investors and some of the biggest names in the world (Google, Facebook, Snap) and become one of the most exciting tech cities in the world.
That's why there's so much buzz around London Tech Week, which celebrates and builds upon the city's momentum as a hugely important hub in the global technology ecosystem. The five-day event attracts tens of thousands of participants and attendees, as well as hundreds of companies and industry organizations, who are dedicated to building the foundations of a digital, hyper-connected future where artificial intelligence, virtual reality, the Internet of Things and many more cutting edge technology developments underpin business progress and enrich the lives of individuals all over the world.
At the heart of London Tech Week is TechXLR8, a three-day 'festival of technology' comprising eight leading industry events, an unrivaled roll call of headline speakers, informative conference tracks, networking opportunities, workshops, awards and more. The events are:
- 5G World
- VR & AR World
- Apps World Evolution
- Internet of Things World Europe
- AI & Machine Learning World
- Cloud & DevOps World
- Connected Cars & Autonomous Vehicles Europe
- Project Kairos
But London's thriving technology scene isn't a one-week wonder -- it is constantly growing and evolving and that's why we've launched TechX365, the permanent online digital community supporting London Tech Week and TechXLR8.
The TechX365 community provides not only in-depth coverage of the developments from London Tech Week, but year-round analysis of the key industry trends at the heart of London's tech innovation scene, with a particular focus on the technology startups that are driving innovation across the digital landscape.
Comprising multimedia coverage -- news, blogs, executive interviews, contributed columns, video reports, picture stories, infographics, polls and more -- TechX365 will give London Tech Week an ever-present online presence with a core focus on:
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Connected cars
