Event organised to celebrate Tech City’s talent

A two-week festival – celebrating the ingenuity and enterprise of Tech City – will be taking place in London next month.

Around 15,000 people are expected to attend the Digital Shoreditch event, which is the culmination of a year’s worth of workshops and meetings organised by members of the city’s burgeoning tech community.

Dozens of speakers have been lined up for the fortnight, with organisers promising that the programme will reflect the fast-changing nature of the sector.

James Allsopp, director and curator of Digital Shoreditch, outlined his hopes for this year’s line-up in an interview with the Hackney Gazette.

“We look for people with interesting stories and that is how the speakers are picked,” he said.

“Users submit their speaker and there is a voting session pitched to followers on social media.

“The voting helps us curate the programme; we ask for people’s input all the time, there is no direction that we take without the community becoming part of it.

“We have seen a lot of robotics, biohacking and of course the 3d printed movement, which is really changing the manufacturing industry.”

Digital Shoreditch will be taking place from May 11th-24th.

At Royds, our Corporate Commercial team is available to advise the growing number of tech start-ups setting up shop in London. For more information on our services, contact John North or Claus Andersen.
