London & Partners has partnered with global events provider KNect365, part of Informa PLC, to expand London Tech Week for 2017. The new partnership will offer a wider range of events than previous years, including a new series of six major events at the ExCeL and a concert to celebrate the week, London & Partners said. 

Together, London & Partners and KNect365 have set a goal of attracting more than 100,000 visitors to the festival within the next three years. Hundreds of events will be hosted across the city from June 12-16, 2017.

2017’s events program will also include conferences, showcases and forums, compelling content, speakers and networking opportunities and a greater opportunity for participation from start-ups, entrepreneurs, enthusiasts, students and corporates alike.

The festival will provide an opportunity for London to showcase its tech credentials, London & Partners said. In July, The Mayor was joined by a group of tech leaders to launch the #LondonIsOpen campaign to show London is united and open for business to the world following the referendum vote for the UK to leave the EU. 

The new partnership between London & Partners and KNect365 will see Informa’s TechXLR8 portfolio of events incorporated into the London Tech Week program. Informa’s TechXLR8 portfolio includes six major events such as Apps World, 5G World and VR & AR World Summit.

Since the launch of the initiative in 2014, London Tech Week has grown to become Europe’s largest festival of technology, London & Partners said. Last year’s London Tech Week comprised over 300 individual events and attracted more than 40,000 visitors from all over the world. 

London Tech Week 2017 will be organised by London & Partners and KNect365, in association with founding partner Tech London Advocates, with support from strategic partners Tech City UK, ExCeL London, UKTI and techUK.
