00:/ is today exhibiting at the new, multi-sector, networking event ‘Innovate UK’ – a joint venture from the Technology Strategy Board and UK Trade & Investment. Uniting the highly successful Innovate and TechWorld events, Innovate UK - which takes place 11-13 March, 2013, at the Business Design Centre in London - will provide opportunities for companies looking to accelerate their growth through innovation, international trade and investment.

00:/ will share their latest thinking with an estimated 4,000 UK and international visitors, as part of a showcase of the most innovative work happening in the UK today. The event aims to drive economic growth by stimulating business-led innovation and opening up international trade opportunities.

Iain Gray, Chief Executive of the Technology Strategy Board said: “All our exhibitors are specially selected by the Technology Strategy Board and UKTI to feature at the exhibition and are ones that can demonstrate truly innovative products, services or technologies that have been developed here in the UK. We’re very pleased 00:/ is taking part in the event and believe it is a great representation of the UK’s strength in innovative business.”

Nick Baird, Chief Executive of UK Trade & Investment said: "Over the last two years, businesses that attended Innovate and TechWorld collectively generated over £70m worth of UK trade; 65% of them identified new business opportunities and 77% said they learned something that would help them to innovate. By bringing the events together we hope to deliver even more success for UK businesses whether by helping them grow through innovation, international trade and investment or collaborative opportunities.”
