These are the 6 most interesting events at London Technology Week
Every June, all the technophiles in London get together for hundreds of events. And we mean hundreds. There’s loads of them, too many to go through.
It’s London Technology Week time!
The problem is, there’s loads of events to choose from… and unless you have a teleporter, it’s impossible to get to them all.
We’ve gone through the whole list, and have curated the ones that are the most innovative, the most unique, and the most interesting. Oh, and they’re all free to attend – nice, right?
Here at Phrasee we’re all about innovation. Whether it’s email subject line innovation, or anything else – if something is new, innovative and interesting, we love it.
Check out the list below and see if you can still get tickets to the various events…
What is the digital world doing to our minds & bodies?
When: 15 June @ 9:30am
Where: Old Street Roundabout
What: These days, we check our phones constantly. We form human connections on the internet. We’re always on. What are the implications on brands and society?
Why: Most conferences focus on the “right now” – but this one is different. It looks at the over-arching effect our “always on” lives have on society. It’s bound to be interesting, and maybe even a little bit scary.
Imaging Mind: Hack The Visual
When: 16 June @ 7:00pm
Where: Central Working Whitechapel
What: Visual content online is growing exponentially, and new innovations are constantly launching. You’ll hear a few innovative startups who are trying to stake a claim to the industry.
Why: Phrasee’s CTO Neil did his PhD in image pattern recognition, so we’re particularly interested in this area. Plus you’ll get to try out some cool new tech.
Women in Tech: The Past. The Present. The Future.
When: 16 June @ 5:00pm
Where: 20 Cavendish Square
What: Networking event for women involved in the tech industry.
Why: Look at the board of most tech firms and they tend to be very homogeneous. Phrasee believes in gender balance – our COO Victoria will attest to this fact – so if you’re a woman in tech, get to know others in the industry at this event.
When: 16 June @ 6:00pm
Where: Google Campus London
What: 5 minute pitches from winners of a hacking competition… and then a cocktail competition where you can showcase your own cocktail recipes
Why: Um, cocktails. ‘nuff said.
Tom Fox Scrap Instruments Showcase
When: 16 June @ 6:00pm
Where: Machines Room
What: Tom Fox, who makes electric upcycled instruments, will be jamming with the audience.
Why: It’s like a high-tech, interactive Blue Man Group. This is one to check out if you’re interested in post-hipster music.
Food of Genius
When: 19 June @ 6:30pm
Where: Secret location (ooooh, how intriguing…)
What: 3 Food Tech startups present to an audience in a Dragons Den-style format.
Why: Because food is good, and helps us live. And innovative food is interesting. And also, it’ll be a break from the generic food trends that have ruined the eating scene in Shoreditch.
Three cheers for the London technology industry!
Phrasee will be at all of the events above, and a few others – if you want to meet up then drop us a line and let’s get it in the diary.
