A record number of international technology companies are expected to join delegations heading to London next month to take part in London Technology Week 2016, a week-long celebration of the capital’s tech sector, showcasing more than 200 events set to take place across the city from June 20 to 26, London & Partners reports. 
International companies are set to travel to London from countries including the United States, China, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, South Korea, Israel and a number of European nations. With five weeks to go until the London Technology Week 2016 Launch Event, the number of international delegations signed up has exceeded the 2015 figure.

London Technology Week 2016 will host hundreds of events highlighting the city’s tech industry. More than 160 events are currently listed for the festival, which will explore the trending topics in tech from 3D printing and virtual reality, to exporting and intellectual property.

Headline events include UKTI and London & Partners’ Setting up in London, Stack Overflow’s Tech Talent: Developing Our Future, Tech London Advocates’ Creative Tech, techUK’s The Connected Home, Equinix’s Innovation Through Interconnection, and Ungagged: SEO Digital Marketing

Other events during the week include WIRED Money, Computer Weekly’s Most Influential Women in UK Tech, Dot London’s Digital Marketing Drop-in Clinic for start-ups and small businesses and UKTI USA’s America’s Hottest Tech Hubs, part of the new International Programme for 2016. 

The International Programme, sponsored by Colt Data Centre Services, is designed to cater to foreign delegations looking to set up in London and also for domestic companies seeking international expansion opportunities. Tech City Tours will also provide a Future of Work tour for groups who would like to understand the processes of the entrepreneurship working environment, and how these spaces ensure increased innovation and disrupt traditional ways of working.

A number of high-profile ambassadors representing all corners of the tech community have agreed to support London Technology Week 2016. The group includes Gerard Grech, CEO of Tech City UK, Kathryn Parsons, Co-CEO and Co-founder of Decoded, and Michael Acton Smith OBE, Founder of Mind Candy.

London Technology Week is organized by UBM EMEA, in association with founding partners London & Partners, ExCeL London and Tech London Advocates, with support from strategic partners Tech City UK, UKTI and techUK.

London hosted its first London Technology Week in 2014 and last year’s festival attracted over 43,000 attendees from around the world. London’s tech sector was represented in over 200 independently run events which took place in venues such as The Shard, The Ritz, Canada House and ExCeL London.
