The UK Department for International Trade will host its first virtual mission to London Tech Week and is looking for innovative Queensland tech companies to join the free mission. Applications close midnight Monday 13 July.

The UK is a global technology leader, with the world’s third-largest digital technology sector and a record-breaking £10.1B investment into UK tech companies in 2019. If your company is interested in expanding into the UK market, attendance at London Tech Week is a must.

Last year’s Tech Week attracted over 58,000 attendees from 95 countries, hosting 300 events with a social media reach of 300 million people. This year Tech Week will transition to a virtual format, with Australian and New Zealand participants receiving a curated program over 3 nights tailored to their needs and interests.

Queensland companies from the following sectors are encouraged to apply directly to the UK Department for International to participate in the virtual mission:

  • medtech and digital health
  • fintech and regtech
  • future technology (AI, cyber, blockchain, IoT, robotics, big data)
  • agtech
  • energy and cleantech
  • other (eg AR/VR, creative tech/media, sportstech, proptech).

TIQ’s London office will also be available to provide follow-up support to any Queensland company participating in the virtual mission.

If you’d like to participate more broadly in London Tech Week, or host your own event, please see our separate listing on the event.
