London Lures Major Tech Festival to Showcase 'Internet of Things'\

“This is an exciting opportunity for east london, something on this scale, bringing product design and technology together, has never been done before.

Poole said the intention was for the Here East site to become a campus, a tech-based location that would be very different in feel from Shoreditch's Silicon Roundabout.

"The aim is to attract small companies who are into product design before they go to scale," he said, emphasising that Here East wanted to create an inclusive, interactive community, bringing in local schools and talent, including the hundreds of artists who work in Hackney Wick across the River Lee from the park.”
