Rally for Remain

A decision to leave the EU would be a huge gamble for the future of London, and our thriving tech sector.

London First has been campaigning hard to demonstrate the value of London’s EU membership, and will be holding a ‘Rally for Remain: A celebration of Tech, London and Europe’ on Thursday 12 May, from 6.30pm onwards at Albert House, just beside Old Street Roundabout.

You’ll hear from investors, entrepreneurs and leading figures from London’s tech scene about what you can do to help us keep Britain in the EU. There will also be good food, drinks, and the chance to network with other industry leaders.

We are delighted to have confirmed Jo Johnson MP, Minister for Universities and Science, as a keynote speaker, along with Seema Malhotra MP, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury and Ian Livingstone CBE, one of the founding fathers of the UK games industry.
