The first London Technology Week will take place in June 2014, reinforcing London’s role of a global technology centre, it was announced today.

Organised by UBM Live and London & Partners, the event will centre on Tech City, London’s digital and start-up community, and ExCeL London.

"London is at the forefront of digital innovation, with tech giants thriving here as well as dynamic new start-ups. This vibrant sector now supports hundreds of thousands of jobs in our city with potential to massively grow. I welcome the creation of London Technology Week as the latest initiative to harness the buzz around this exciting industry," said Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London.

Scheduled to commence on 16 June 2014, the first year of London’s Technology Week, expected to be only the first in a long series, will offer a broad variety of events, from boutique networking opportunities for business representatives, to company open days and major events showcasing the best of London’s technology abundance.

"London has always been a city that embraces new technology and east London has a growing reputation as Europe's home of technology start-ups" said Jeremy Rees, Executive Director, ExCeL London.

London Technology Week was created in a response to the speeding development of the digital innovation sector, which has been taking place in the city during the past years.

"London Technology Week aims to create an annual opportunity for all those working within these dynamic industries to come together, facilitating an exciting forum that focuses on the key issues driving business and growth in  this  market,” said Adrian Newton, Group Director, UBM Live.

The organisers say their ambition is to start a new tradition that will be as important for London’s high tech and digital industry, as the London Fashion Week is for the city’s fashion industry.

"Our capital continues to play home to some of the most inspiring businesses and the best talent in the world. And we are delighted to work with UBM to act as a catalyst and demonstrate London's  commitment to grow this extremely important sector to the UK economy and help build a significant  new and high value series of technical events,” said  Gordon Innes, CEO of London & Partners, the Mayor's official promotional organisation for London.

Details about the London Technology Week, including participating brands and accompanying events, will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
