Tech Week London is an annual event dedicated to the technology industry from all over the world. The latest Edition of the Tech Week London event took place between 10-12 June 2024. The event attracted over 1000+ investors, 45.000 visitors, and 5.000 startups. These weren’t the only impressive numbers, because internally there were 70+ connected events where the main stage was taken by over 350+ keynote speakers global tech advocates, and many people from the Royal Academy.

Adexin visited London not for the first time of course. Not so long ago, our staff was permanently operating in the UK, but this time, I traveled to visit this incredibly thoughtful event.

By following the industrial trend, we could get more updates on what technology advances giants like DHL or IBM may seek to provide their customers in the supply chain, logistics, and transportation landscape.

Taking advantage of many insightful conversations, we also shared our knowledge about our main industrial focus, which is logistics, transportation, and SCM software development. See more in our short wrap-up of what happened during Tech Week London 2024.

Top highlights of London Tech Week 2024 

In the UK, we are already familiar with several London Tech Week events, but this one is among the most prominent. This is because, despite its strict focus on digital transformation, technology, and start-up development, there is always a huge interest from companies that are within our scope of interest.

As mentioned, during the event we met several representatives from the supply and logistics industry, such as DHL, BaxterFreight, and giants like Unilever and IBM, Microsoft UK, whose booth was one of the largest and centrally located at the venue.

London Tech Week 2024 highlighted for me the forefront of technological innovation with visionary insights from leaders across industries.

Let’s say, what I experienced was in-depth studies of the startup ecosystem and influential discussions on social impact. Here are the main topics:

Artificial intelligence

Here, everyone could hear about the rapid development of artificial intelligence that is transforming industries, prompting discussions on ethics. This was, let's say, another AI summit in London. These are our real-world implications and what is increasing operational efficiency.

The future of security and data

This subject was moved towards data privacy at the forefront. The event explored emerging threats, proactive solutions, and ethical responsibilities for protecting sensitive information.

The talent of tomorrow

Touching on the changing labor market included discussions on upskilling. This was a bit for the HR department, as we saw that there is huge talent hunting but nevertheless, the subject of talent retention strategies and lifelong learning to prepare the future workforce is super important.

I could see how tech innovation is revolutionizing industries and expanding human capabilities. Indeed, because not only AI was driving the event but also automation and robotics.

Green innovations

The role of technology in sustainable development includes discussions on environmentally friendly solutions is everywhere on the top. At the Tech Week London venue, we could see closed-loop economy practices, and how they’re creating a sustainable future through collaboration between technology and business.

Meaningful connections, unlimited potential

Key perspective on collaboration & enterprise tech leaders

London Tech Week is a melting pot of inspiration and collaboration. Here, I heard the stories of founders who have built technology empires. Moreover, we engaged in interesting opinion exchanges and observed that even some tech giants are still on the development curve. This aspect is crucial for companies aiming to stay ahead of the competition. You need to be in the right place as one of the enterprise tech leaders.

While attending sessions that spur innovation and learning from industry leaders' experiences, there was an opportunity to connect with like-minded innovators and provide insights into the logistics and transportation industry. It's incredible how many companies consider themselves as one-size-fits-all solutions when they lack the capabilities to do so. This was actually my unpleasant experience with some business developers. So, our message from the USA is clear: please pay attention to the details and do not overestimate your capabilities.

We emphasize this because what we've learned at Adexin over the last decade is to find your niche and not promise small and medium-sized businesses in logistics. Let's say, for example, that we can create a WMS software solution for them when we don't actually understand how it works. You cannot get on the learning curve, while your customer trusts you’re an expert in the industry. Also, how would you feel if a technology officer from your customer company already finds out that your team doesn't have the skills?

Adexin has accumulated extensive knowledge about logistics systems over a long period, and we acknowledge that we can't develop software for every industry, despite our back-end services expertise in Node.js, NextJS, Javascript, and other popular coding languages. It's that simple. Find your niche and specialize to deliver the best solutions for one, not for all. This is the way to solve the world's biggest problems.
