Mayor Sadiq Khan wants London Tech Week to be Europe's top tech event in 2017
London Tech Week 2017 is set to be bigger and better than ever, with London & Partners announcing a new partnership with leading global events provider KNect365, part of Informa PLC.
Together, London & Partners and KNect365 aim to boost London Tech Week and make it one of the most successful tech festivals in the world, with the goal of attracting more than 100,000 visitors to the festival within the next three years. Hundreds of events will be hosted across the city from 12-16th June 2017.

Building on the success of last year, 2017's events programme will also include conferences, showcases and forums, compelling content, speakers and networking opportunities and a greater opportunity for participation from start-ups, entrepreneurs, enthusiasts, students and corporates alike.

The mega-festival will provide an opportunity for London to showcase its tech credentials on the world stage and show that #LondonIsOpen. In July, the Mayor was joined by a group of tech leaders to launch the #LondonIsOpen campaign to show London is united and open for business to the world following the EU referendum.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said, "London is a truly global tech hub, with a tech sector that sustains thousands of high quality jobs and an unrivalled pool of talented and creative people from all over the world. London Tech Week is a great opportunity to celebrate our ever-growing strength in tech, and the many fantastic entrepreneurs and innovators that help make our city the best place in the world to do business. I want London Tech Week to be Europe's top tech event in 2017, highlighting that London is open for business, new investment and global talent."

London Tech Week 2017 will be organised by London & Partners and KNect365, in association with founding partner Tech London Advocates, with support from strategic partners Tech City UK, ExCeL London, UKTI and techUK.
