IPT Breakfast Meeting

According to Tech City UK, the UK's Digital Technology Industries are growing 32% faster than the rest of the UK economy. There are now more than 40,000 digital technology companies in the UK’s capital, with that figure expected to exceed 50,000 by 2025. As London continues to grow as a technology hub, how can the Government and industry work to ensure success across the rest of the UK? This breakfast meeting will:

  • Highlight the successes of London as a technology hub
  • Discuss how major cities outside of London are developing as upcoming hubs for technology 
  • Consider how larger businesses can support innovation and accelerate growth across the UK
  • Discuss how the Government and Industry can work together to collaboratively drive innovation and continue to support the digital transformation of the tech industry.
