On Tuesday the 13th June London Tech Week was in full swing with the Tech Australia 2017 briefing and reception held at Austalia House. London Tech Week is one of the largest events around the world with international participation. London, being such an important centre for the global tech industry is of huge importance to Australian companies to ensure their voices reach the international stage.
The sell out event was a collaboration between the Australian state governments, Austrade and the Australia-United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce to showcase Australia's exciting tech scene. With 250 people in attendence, including over fifty tech companies from Australia, investors, media and representatives from the UK tech scene, this was a huge success in presenting the opportunities available in Australia.
Throughout the event a range of Australian wine and beer was served. Along with Anzac biscuits, meat pies, pavlova and lamingtons, adding to the promotion of a quintessential Australian reception.
The Australian High Commissioner, The Hon Alexander Downer, AC, welcomed guests to Australia House. The keynote was powerful and inspiring, spoken by Michael Harte, Barclay's Chief Technology Officer.
