During London Digital Signage week, Tech London Advocates’ biggest event yet, which takes place on Thursday May 11, 2017 celebrates the venture capitalists, unicorn founders and world-leading entrepreneurs and funders, all driving the continued success of London’s technology sector.

Amidst geo-political turbulence, market uncertainty and an emerging new world order of global economic powerhouses, London’s place in the global investor community could be called into question so this event is a must for anyone interested in the sector.

Given the calibre of the speakers, the scale of the event and not-for-profit ethos behind it, the organisers are asking all attendees to pay a small ticket fee of GBP 20 to minimise the number of ‘no-shows’ – the event will very likely be at maximum capacity on the day.

London Digital Signage Week takes place May 8-12, 2017 and as with its counterpart in New York, the week is for anyone involved with digital signage and interested in retail, employee communications, smart cities, digital out of home and of course digital signage!
