London Technology Week 2016
Convergence, creativity and collaboration were just three of the themes of the week. London's Tech Cluster is very much open for business.
“Tech is colliding with every industry and that’s what makes it so exciting”, says Russ Shaw from Tech London Advocates at London Technology Week 2016. Tech innovation is happening in London and disrupting traditional industries from finance and fashion, education to travel.
To showcase tech convergence during London Technology Week, we shone a spotlight on 10 revolutionary technology businesses representing EdTech, FinTech, TravelTech, AdTech, Fashion Tech and Digital Health.
This year’s launch event celebrated London’s creativity in tech with London-based fashion designer Brooke Roberts curating an inspiring fashion technology installation.
The installation featured some cutting-edge fashion technologies, including the world’s first holographic intelligent mannequin from Headworks, the Bruise Suit - an injury-detection suit for disabled athletes developed by London’s Royal College of art as well as a 3D printed wearable garment designed by Modeclix.
During London Technology Week, over 21 international delegations came over to explore business collaboration and investment opportunities in London. With over 40,000 attendees and close to 300 events, the festival of technology demonstrates the thriving tech community alive and well in London.
