Technology advancement is always a pleasure to witness. The best way to communicate about such achievements is through accessible public events with the core purpose of analyzing substantial growth. Let it be conferences or seminars, they unveil the future of technology as the global catalyst of change.
A great example of such incredible events is the London Tech Week. This year’s LTW lasted from 13th to 17th June and had some of the most innovative themes to display. LTW showcases UK’s most phenomenal and futuristic concepts every year, and Conovo became lucky enough to attend this one-of-a-kind event. In this blog, we will be retelling the entire experience from our perspective.

Owned by Informa Telecoms and Media, London Tech Week 22’ was organized through an amazing collaboration between Informa tech, Founders Forum, London & Partners, and Tech London Advocates. It welcomed more than 20,000 attendees at the Westminster Campus in London. This year’s sponsors and partners included notable names like AWS, IBM, Microsoft, Accenture, Cisco, Google, Dell Technologies, Zoom, and many more. A stellar variety of events including the Global Leaders Innovation Summit, EQL:HER, ClimateTech Summit, and HealthTech Summit were observed successfully throughout the week. It was a lively celebration of technology and its wonders in the modern age.
Our Experience and Purpose
It goes beyond arranging a fancy 5-day event. LTW was designed to enhance tech localization and business opportunities while leaving room for networking and awareness for the audience. The tech industry in the UK is among the most popular tech scenes in the world. Originated in 2014, this initiative was launched to shine a much-needed spotlight on London as the UK's tech heart. It doesn’t only allow new talents to surface but also provides them with beneficial opportunities to market, pitch, and sell their services.
By enabling impeccable speakers to share valuable knowledge with the attendants in an informative manner, it encourages innovation in the rawest forms. London Tech Week creates a valid and credible platform to provide exposure to the most powerful aspects of technology, allowing us to reimagine all we know and can create by harnessing them.
