Last night e3 sponsored the official party for London Technology Week. The night was also a celebration of also five-year anniversary of the inception of Tech City UK. Attended by over 1,200 people, it was a rousing success with lots of different digitally inclined attendees from all walks of life.
Tech City UK deliver programmes focused on accelerating the growth of digital businesses across the UK at all stages of their development and they’ve made a tremendous impact on businesses in the UK in their five-year history.
This year they launched their Tech Nation Report for 2016 which looked at the state of the technology and digital industry in the UK, which named Bristol as the UK’s fasted growing tech economy outside of London – giving our Bristol studio some kudos. “Tech isn’t a silo, a sector apart. Today it runs deeply in every sector, and is reshaping many aspects of our lives. That’s why big institutions and corporations need be right at the heart of future success for it to be meaningful and lasting” said Tech City CEO Gerard Grech in an official blog celebrating the event. Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, also attended to kick off the celebrations in style.
e3 was proud to sponsor their event and with the help of Twitter Mirror’s, Snapchat and some VR the night was truly digital! You can take a look at some of the fun in action on our curated Storify below.
