The technology sector has fast become the beating heart of London, bringing more financial investment during Q1 2015 than in any previous quarter. As one of the closest major venues to London’s epicentre of tech the ‘silicon roundabout’, we’ve been privileged to be at the centre of this revolution, seeing first-hand how the influx of innovative and exciting companies, both new and old, have helped to regenerate and bring a buzz back to the area.
As technology develops, event organisers, not just those in the tech industry, want more and more from their conference and event spaces. As a business, we have developed our product to meet the needs of forward-thinking companies and individuals and, as such, have welcomed everything from hackathons to global tech companies to experience our high-spec WIFI infrastructure and crystal clear sound systems.
We are thrilled with the continued growth and investment of this sector, this is reflected in our own technological developments and increased digital capacity throughout The Brewery.
Highlighting London’s position as a hotbed of tech innovation, business success, entrepreneurship and creative talent is London Technology Week (15-21 June). The seven day festival of live, face-to-face events will bring more than 40,000 people together from the tech community, and we are proud to be headline partners. To celebrate we will host the event organisers and tech specialists and presenters for a drinks reception at The Brewery on Thursday 18 June.
In addition to London Technology Week 2015, we’re dedicating a special ‘tech focus’ for the next Knowledge Guild in July, called ‘An Insight into Tech, Trust and Transformation’. On the 8 July, we’ll be welcoming tech reporter Kate Russell, and guests including digital entrepreneur and former TV ‘Dragon’ Piers Linney, international expert on cyber security Misha Glenny, and web psychologist Nathalie Nahai.
London is increasingly recognised as the global pacesetter in the tech sector and for digital start-ups. The new figures and record year-on-year visitor numbers continue to attract tech investors to our capital like never before, it’s not surprising that this year’s London Technology Week 2015 is going to be the biggest and best yet.
