TechLR8 launches as London Tech Week's new headline event

Curated by KNect365, TechXLR8 brings together eight leading technology events at London’s ExCeL, June 13-15, 2017.

Forming part of London Tech Week, TechXLR8 will play a central part in a week-long festival of live technology events taking place across the UK’s capital. It celebrates and cultivates London as a global powerhouse of tech innovation by connecting the entire ecosystem both within London and beyond.

“KNect365’s vision for London Tech Week is really to take it to the next level, we want to create a mega-festival of technology on a global scale that is reflective of the community. TechXLR8 is the anchor for that, bringing together six leading technology events, and two brand new propositions to encompass the whole technology ecosystem,” says Carolyn Dawson, Events Director & Managing Director of KNect365, an Informa Plc business.

TechXLR8 is the first event of its kind and scale to come to London, and the only UK event to give a holistic view of the enterprise technology supply chain, from global network providers to independent app developers, startups, and everything in between.

Russ Shaw, founder of Tech London Advocates, comments: “London Tech Week is an opportunity to show the international tech community the wealth of talent, innovation and investment returns available in London’s digital sector. After three years of success, the festival is set to be bigger and better than ever in 2017, sending a clear message that London tech is open for business, aiming for significant growth and brimming with ambition.”
