From high-up UK and US Government officials, to the world’s leading tech execs, to a whole SERIES of fringe events, London Tech Week (2022) was NOT one to miss.

And it all happened at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, from the 13th, to the 17th June.

Rishi Sunak opened the event, Hillary Rodham Clinton took part in a virtual session, and the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy – addressed the global tech community via a hologram.

There were talks from Calm’s Co-Founder & CEO, Michael Acton Smith, Zoom’s Government Relations Director, Charlotte Holloway, AWS’ VP & General Manager, Darren Hardman, and a huge drive for #womenintech, via the EQL:HER and EQL:Pledge.

AND, there were some fantastic Fringe events, too:
  • A much needed, highly sought after Future of Work Summit,
  • A ClimateTech fringe event,
  • A HealthTech fringe event,
  • An EdTech fringe event,
  • A PropTech fringe event,
  • An AI fringe event, and more.

And let’s not forget about the incredible round-table discussions, the networking drinks, the option for delegates to attend virtually, and some sponsorship/support from the likes of aws, IBM, Microsoft, and… The Mayor of London. There was even a demo area for the barking mad: drones, interactive robots, VR surgery, and some much needed international opportunities.

One event we attended, was a TechUK event called ‘Unpacking the UK’s free trade agreements in the Asia Pacific.’

The event explored digital trade policy for UK businesses looking to enter (or already doing business in) the APAC region, commercial opportunities, new free trade agreements for UK tech businesses, and more. We were glad to attend.
