“The lovechild of TED Talks and WWE wrestling” crash-lands from London to the Great Britain House…
Get ready to witness The Tech Off: Imaginocalypse! Brought to you by tech special ops team Techdept, The Tech Off is holding two heats and one Grand Finale to find the winner of The GREAT British Wrestling Belt. Top tech speakers each get only five minutes to imagine the future of technology. When the bell goes, they are ejected from the stage… The audience chooses the winners! Our Grand Finale Champ will take away The GREAT British Belt of Tech!
Heats 1 & 2 will see up to 10 of the top UK companies fight it out – only two winners will be selected from each heat. Then the winners will duke it out at the Grand Finale on Monday night, all at the Great Britain House.

Heat 2: Sun March 12, 1-3pm, Kew Gardens Rooftop @ the Great Britain House
