About London tech Week

Since 2013, London Tech Week has grown into a global celebration of tech, uniting the most senior leaders with innovative thinkers and the talent of tomorrow in a multi-event festival.

The 2019 edition hosted 300+ events and 58,000+ global attendees. Together, we share insight, forge connections and drive the conversations around transformation and the profound positive impact of technology on our world.

This year we took an early decision to postpone London Tech Week from our usual dates in June (8-12) to September (2-11), with a range of virtual forums continuing in June to address the critical conversations of the current climate. We welcomed some fantastic speakers including the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson; Hilary Clinton; Roger Lynch from Condé Nast; Tim Draper from Draper Associates; Andy Puddicombe from Headspace; Arianna Huffington from Thrive Global; Poppy Gustafsson from Darktrace amongst many more.

In September, we will be convening the community for our London Tech Week anchor events and planning this to be even bigger and better.

Through this year of disruption and change, the power of technology to drive new opportunities and empower global communities has been brought to the forefront. As the world rebuilds, the Global Leaders Innovation Summit will explore how the tech ecosystem is working together to enable new futures where tech is for everyone and impactful innovation thrives.

This Summit will bring together a leadership audience and interactive formats to collide the best in global scaleup innovation with industry giants to create a disruptive environment ripe for collaboration and exploration.

This dynamic event for senior leaders will offer a 360 view on the innovation landscape, leveraging expertise from across the global ecosystem and unlocking new opportunities.

Speaker line up includes Min Liang-Tan, CEO, Razer; Alex Mahon, CEO, Channel 4; Obi Felton, Head of Getting Moonshots ready, X; Andy standford Clarke, CTO, IBM, with discussions with top executives continuing  with Baidu, Quibi, Affirm, Rappler, Twitter, John Lewis, Starbucks, amongst others.
