Our early summer programme of events comes to a close after welcoming thousands of visitors
From Chinese dragon boat racing and hanging acrobatic performers, to discussions on developments in the tech world and aviation industry, our early summer programme of events had it all.
We welcomed thousands of visitors for the events, which included the launch of the UK India Tech Hub, to the UK Asia Tech Powerhouse, the London Hong Kong Dragon Boat race, London Festival of Architecture, and the Greenwich + Docklands International Festival.
The summer programme of events kicked off with the UK India Tech Hub at RAD, which saw the promotion of business between the UK and India with UK-India venture capital fund Pontaq, providing a designated space for technology firms.
This was shortly followed by the UK Asia Tech Powerhouse Conference, which brought together the greatest minds from Asia and the UK’s tech industry for a series of intense debates, covering topics such as e-commerce, the future of transportation, cybersecurity, and urban planning. The conference also celebrated two funding and Chinese tour initiatives, for UK and Asia tech start-ups.
In addition to the tech-focused events, we also partnered with City AM and London City Airport to host the Future of Aviation Panel, where experts representing different segments of the aviation industry took part in debates surrounding the ongoing developments and trends affecting their sector.
We also hosted the London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival last month, which brought people together to watch the race at the waterfront, and we were delighted to see the ABP team win top prize, successfully beating 26 teams in the Open category
During the London Festival of Architecture, we teamed up with Farrells, who designed the masterplan of RAD, to offer guided tours about the design process and vision behind this dynamic commercial and residential project.
The Greenwich + Docklands International Festival wowed thousands of people when it brought to RAD the architectural installation Daedalum – a maze of illuminated and interconnected domes which visitors could walk through.
This concluded last weekend with the Cristal Palace closing ceremony, where 2,500 people gathered here at RAD to witness its transformation into a giant, outdoor ballroom, complete with dancing human candles in a giant chandelier hoisted above the crowd which was concluded with a breath-taking firework display.
We would like to thank the many partners and organisations with whom we have worked with these last few months, and look forward to continuing to strengthen our community by hosting even more events that celebrate our culture, build new bridges, and create more opportunities for visitors and residents alike.
