Tech South West is holding its first national tech showcase in London to celebrate what makes the South West tech sector such a hotbed of innovation.

The region has long been seen as a centre for Green and Blue technologies, with world leaders in Renewable Energy, Marine and Agritech solutions, but it offers so much more. 

With strong Fintech, Aviation, Defence, Space, Creative, MedTech, AI and Cyber sectors, the region has a lot to shout about.

On 12 June, 12:00 - 17:00, we will be hosting the Tech South West London Showcase - bringing all that is great about the South West tech sector to London.

THE TIME IS NOW

2024 is a pivotal time for the South West tech ecosystem.

With a general election on the horizon and renewed vigour for the UK to take the lead in global climate innovation, AI regulation and green technology, the South West is well placed to form a central pillar of the country’s tech ambitions.

The inaugural South West of England Tech Showcase will be a chance to meet the trailblazers from Bristol to Cornwall, building amazing tech and amazing growth companies, and be part of the launch of the South West of England Tech Prospectus 2024.

The focus is on the blue & green economy - cleantech, climate tech, marine tech, agritech - but the event will be packed with tech innovation and opportunity that spans the sector.

Outside London and the South East, the South West of England has the second largest tech economy by capita in the UK, its GVA reaching £11bn by 2021, thanks to the 160,000 tech workers and 17,500 businesses across the region, according to the SW of England Tech Analysis Report.

Through cleantech and a focus on the future economy, the South West is leading the UK’s shift to a net zero advanced economy.

The innovation underway, and the opportunities emerging - across the likes of the UK’s Marine Freeport, Quantum Technologies Centre, Deep Tech Centre, UK Centres for Agricultural Research, Spaceport Cornwall, National Composite Centre, University of Exeter Centre for Energy and the Environment, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UWE Future Space Robotics Centre, iAero Aviation, Gravity, the UK’s first EV battery plant, and more - put the South West at the cutting edge of future possibilities.

The showcase & prospectus launch takes place at 1 Creechurch Place, London, close to the Gherkin on 12 June, 12:00 - 17:00.
