How to prepare for MARCH8 LIVE at TECH LIVE LONDON

As we’re eagerly counting down the days to the March8 LIVE event, we’re proud to introduce three more speakers who will be covering the latest tech topics

Next Thursday and Friday (June 23rd and 24th) a number of phenomenal speakers will be taking to the MARCH8 stage at TECH LIVE LONDON to give talks to educate, motivate and elevate our wonderful community. 

The event will be jam-packed with amazing talks, networking opportunities and interactive activities, but to make sure you don’t miss out on anything, read our handy guide to prepare ahead of time.

Plan your route

First and foremost, we want you to have a nice and easy time getting to us, but you may be aware that there are planned rail strikes in the UK on June 23rd, the first day of TECH LIVE LONDON. However, there will be no rail strikes on the second day of the event, Friday 24th.

The strike will not affect the London Underground, so you will still be able to take the tube to Tobacco Dock. Other TfL services such as the DLR, London Overground and trams, will also not be affected.

How to get to Tobacco Dock

By train: The nearest train stations to Tobacco Dock are Shadwell Station, which is a five-minute walk, Wapping Rail Station, which is a six-minute walk, and Tower Hill Station, which is a 15-minute walk. 

By overground and DLR: You can take the overground to Shadwell Station from Shoreditch (two stops), or the DLR from Canary Wharf (15 minutes) or Bank (1 stop).

By bus: Bus routes 100 and D3 run closest to Tobacco Dock

By car: You can also drive to Tobacco Dock and park at its dedicated car park. You can book your car parking space here:

Meet the speaker

As our amazing speakers will be stealing the show, we want to make sure you don’t miss a minute of what they have to say. Wherever your tech interests lie, our speakers will discuss the hottest topics, including the metaverse, DE&I, ESG, artificial intelligence, and much, much more.

But with so many amazing talks, make sure you have a full understanding of who will be covering what, so you can organise your priority list accordingly. To help you do so, we’ve been introducing all our lovely speakers on our website, so you can find out more about them ahead of the event. 

And remember, if you have any questions for the speakers, you can log them on Brella ahead of time!

Make a schedule 

With so much to do and see, you want to make sure that you know exactly where you need to be, and at what time. Although the MARCH8 Live stage will be packed with amazing speakers, there will be various other stages you can visit too, such as TECHNOLOGY and AI, CYBER, and CLOUD 5G.

Our best advice would be to take an in depth look at our agenda, which will help you gain a greater understanding of what will be happening and when.
