About London Tech Week (LTW)

LTW is Europe’s largest technology festival gathering the world’s most inspirational founders, global leaders, senior investors and rising stars to collaborate and discuss the vital role of technology on society. 


In 2020 LTW attracted an incredible 20,000+ attendees from across the globe for its first ever virtual LTW, with over 700 sessions across 11 days, featuring 750+ leading speakers and innovators. 130 Aussie and Kiwi companies were selected to participate in the first ever LTW virtual mission to build their network and support them to understand the market opportunities in the UK. 


This year the agenda focuses on a sustainability, inclusivity and resilience to address cross-border challenges and support economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I found it extremely informative, and had no idea that there was so much support from the UK government for Australian companies to setup in the UK. Attending the event also provided me with points of contact that I can reach out to in the future. It was an invaluable event and the time invested was worthwhile.”
