London Tech Week Virtual Trade Mission
September 2 - September 10
The UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) is hosting its inaugural virtual mission to London Tech Week (2 – 10 September 2020) and are looking for innovative tech companies wanting to expand to the UK, to join the free mission.
Why the UK?
The UK is Europe’s top scaling tech nation, and is increasing its lead in the world with a record breaking £10.1bn investment into UK tech companies in 2019. The third largest digital technology sector in the world means the UK is a global technology leader, with the state-of-the-art capabilities and resources to stay ahead of the curve. In response to times of unprecedented change, the UK government has put in several post COVID-19 measures to support the tech industry in the UK including the recently announced Digital Trade Network (DTN) for Asia Pacific so this is the opportune time to consider expanding into the UK.
The programme will be aimed at the following streams:
- Medtech and Digital health
- Fintech and Regtech
- Future Technology (AI, Cyber, Blockchain, IOT, Robotics, Big Data)
- Energy and Cleantech
- Other (eg. AR/VR, Creative Tech/Media, Sportstech, Proptech)
The highly interactive virtual mission will allow participants to hear from key players in the tech ecosystem and understand the opportunities in the UK post COVID-19.
