London Technology Week coinciding with the Internet World Exhibition, which starts tomorrow at the ExCel London, is up and running with over 200 events  across the five days.

London’s mayor has said “Tech Week is a superb opportunity to hail the success of London‘s tech sector, which despite only being in adolescence already makes a tremendous contribution to our economy and is outperforming our rivals around the globe. The tentacles of our digital army now spread to every corner of the capital and far beyond. We forecast that they will generate a whopping £12 billion of economic activity and 46,000 new jobs in the capital over the next decade.”

In addition to London’s very own Mayor a certain Mr Bloomberg an ex mayor of New York is also in town to grace some of the activities with his presence and has commented “Ten years ago, no one thought of New York or London as a competitor to Silicon Valley – but today, more and more tech companies are looking to our cities as places to launch and grow, because they offer such diversity, creative talent, and high quality of life. Tech companies thrive on data, and the new Center for Urban Science and Progress in London will harness the power of data to make London an even better place, just as NYU-CUSP is doing in New York. Bloomberg Associates is looking forward to working with Mayor Johnson and his team to build on London’s tech momentum and create more jobs in the city.”
