Internet Week Europe to hit London on November 8

Over 100 events to celebrate digital industry will take place

London will play host to more than 100 events designed to celebrate the web as part of Internet Week Europe, which will take place for five days from November 8.

Internet Week first took place in New York in 2008 and was designed raise the profile of the US digital industry and the companies involved, from giants like Microsoft and Google to smaller and less well-known organisations.

Now, the organisers have decided to host a version of the event, which in the US is sponsored by Yahoo, in London for the very first time to celebrate the very best of Europe's digital industry.

Internet Week Europe is being run in conjunction with Nicolas Roope and Nick Farnhill, the founders of Pokelondon.com. Events hosted by The Guardian, BBC, Yahoo, Google and Tweetdeck have already been confirmed. However, the event's organisers said any interested company or organisation can throw events.

"We started in New York because we really just wanted to bring the industry to life and found that we got national interest, people coming from all over the country and having events in the city. Now we want to bring people to London," said David-Michel Davies, chairman of Internet Week New York.

A full schedule of events is expected to be released next month.
