International Visit to Australia

The Mayor's International Business Programme took its first Retailtech & EdTech visit to Dubai, Melbourne & Sydney in June 2017.

These cities offered our high-growth London businesses the opportunity to explore the Retail and Education sectors to identify partnerships.

Participating companies enjoyed a week of meetings, networking events and small roundtables presenting opportunities to scale their businesses, increase capital and be more open to investment and profitability. They learned about best practice for global expansion strategy, explored business development opportunities and met and networked with their counterparts and corporations for the Retail Tech businesses, and local Departments of Education and schools and universities for the EdTech delegation.

We ended the visit on the opening day of the EduTech show in Sydney, the largest education event in Asia-Pac and the Southern Hemisphere.

London & Partners' CEO, Laura Citron, commented: "Our Retail Technology and Education Technology companies, representing the strength of London’s Tech scene, explored business partnerships and meet with counterparts in Dubai, Sydney and Melbourne demonstrating that technology knows no border.We thoroughly enjoyed meeting with key corporates and leaders locally to collaborate further and explore the opportunities across our great cities, and to show that London is open for business #LondonIsOpen."
