Last night (18 June), The Brewery hosted a special celebration for London Technology Week 2015.
As official venue partners for the week-long technology festival, The Brewery welcomed 110 event organisers, industry contributors and tech specialists to celebrate the hugely successful event, London Technology Week.
Held in the outdoor courtyard marquee, a semi-permanent venue space erected for the summer months, guests were welcomed with Pimm’s cocktails to enjoy the late evening sun. There was also time for networking and a spot of simulation tennis, courtesy of Pavegan Systems’ – the innovative game generates renewable energy.
After being ushered inside to the Queen Charlotte Room there were welcome toasts from Adrian Newton of UBM and Tracy Halliwell, Director of Business Tourism and Major Events at London & Partners.
Canapés included triple fried chips with charred fillet of beef, and béarnaise sauce; crispy chicken skin, rosemary scented mascarpone and pancetta sauce were served. Bowl foods included tempura cod, skin on crispy chips, crushed peas, tartar sauce and malt vinegar gel; chickpeas, fig, mint and cinnamon yoghurt, pomegranate and spinach salad with tamarind sauce.
Throughout the evening guests were encouraged to get technical; activities included a gamified Twitter Wall from The Brewery’s event tech partner Lumi Insight, Mash Machine allowed attendees to generate their own music, while Zappar showcased their app, which transformed everyday images into augmented reality.
Faye Loader, Head of Business Development at The Brewery said: “It has been great to support London Technology Week this year. Having so many influential and creative people in one place was a great opportunity to showcase everything The Brewery has to offer, especially after what has been a hugely successful and busy week of events. Innovative thinking is an asset to London, and something The Brewery thrives on. It is this way of thinking that has taken the capital to where it is today, arguably the most advanced global tech hub.”
London Technology Week comes before The Brewery hosts the next instalment of The Knowledge Guild on Wednesday 8 July, An Insight into Tech, Trust and Transformation.
