2018 is the year of TechXLR8, the flagship event of London Tech Week, the largest tech festival in Europe, and backed by the mayor of London. Project Kairos, the startup program, will take centre stage. The event is 12 – 14 June 2018, at ExCeL, London. Attracting over 55,000 attendees to 300 plus events, London Tech Week is a unique opportunity to gain exposure to the largest and most engaged tech audience.

The TechXLR8 event brings together 8 conferences, 300 exhibitors, live demonstrations, and tremendous networking opportunities that are critical to startup success. Fintech and Blockchain are expanded topics this year, as we’ve seen global innovation in all areas of finance.
Challenge the Expected. Change the Future
Project Kairos offers tech startups an unrivalled platform to network with thought leaders, accelerators, corporates, solution providers, other innovative startups and the investment communities across each industry featured at TechXLR8.
The program launched in 2015 and is now active in 3 continents and boasts an array of features.
Promoting future tech, realigning business strategy and forging collaboration, discover how digital transformation is changing how business gets done. London Tech Week’s anchor event is elevating the transformational impact of technology on industry, lives and society.
One of the most valuable aspects of the event is the relationships that you make. Every element of the festival is designed to maximize those meaningful connection opportunities and to make sure they appeal to all participants – from more hesitant introverts to avid hand-shakers. Many of these will be spontaneous, with people in fields you might not have imagined have such relevance to your own pursuits, while many will be more intentional. In order to help facilitate these chance meetings, there is a VIP team that offers you an array of events, ranging from informal parties and lunch discussions, to sessions that incorporate dialogue among participants, like workshops and fireside chats.
“There’s only one thing more precious than our time and that’s who we spend it on.”
Learn how this revolutionary technology will transform industry verticals. Our Fintech experts on stage will make sure you understand Blockchain 360 and will give you a guide on how to apply blockchain in your business.
