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.

About London Tech Week Virtual Mission

London Tech Week is Europe’s largest technology festival with live events taking place across London. In 2019 LTW attracted over 58,000 attendees from 95 countries, hosting 300 events with a social media reach of 300 million people. The conference has transitioned to a virtual format for 2020 and participants will receive a virtual curated programme over 3 nights filled with content aimed at an Australian and New Zealand audience.

The programme will be aimed at the following streams:

  • Medtech/digital health
  • Fintech
  • Future technology (AI, Cyber, Blockchain, IOT, Robotics, Big Data)
  • Agritech
  • Energy/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.   Apply today.

Applications close 13 July. Only a select number of spots are available for this specially curated and completely free programme for ambitious, globally scalable tech businesses, match-fit for UK market entry.

Please note that sessions will run from 4pm – 8pm AEST and companies must attend at least three evening sessions during London Tech Week, plus a pre-mission briefing.

International Manufacturing Technology Show

Organizers announced Monday they pulled the plug because of uncertainty surrounding when conventions can resume in Illinois under Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s five-phase reopening plan. Currently, the state is in the beginning of phase three, but large gatherings wouldn’t be able to resume until phase five.

We know a live in-person IMTS show can never be replaced with a virtual event. We do, however, realize and understand that even though there is no physical event in 2020, it is our responsibility to provide the IMTS exhibitors and visitors with connections, networking opportunities and technical knowledge. We do not take this responsibility lightly and, to that end, we will launch two programs that will accomplish these goals.

  • IMTS Network: We will host the IMTS Network, live-streaming a wide variety of features and human stories from the Manufacturing Technology sector. More information about the IMTS Network will be provided very soon.
  • NEW – IMTS Spark: IMTS Spark, a comprehensive digital platform that connects IMTS exhibitors and visitors, provides educational and networking opportunities and offers first rate experiences, will launch in the near future.

33rd edition of the Premier Manufacturing Technology show in North America. Industry professionals from all over the world visit IMTS to see and experience more than 15,000 new machine tools, controls, computers, software, components, systems and processes that will solve their manufacturing challenges and improve their efficiency.
