London Tech Week is back - in person - for the first time in two years.

This year, up to 3,000 people are expected to attend talks and seminars held at locations around the capital.

We’re kicking off London Tech Week with the festival’s Carolyn Dawson MD at Informa Tech. What can we look forward to?
