Big Data Week is pleased to announce new dates for the 2013 week long festival. We’ll be kicking off on the 22nd April 2013 and running until the 28th April with a mixture of meetups, network events, hackathons and other fun data stuff.
This year media140 has partnered with the Guardian Media Network to produce The Big Data Week; the global events community platform, to produce and co-ordinate the week long festival of activities and events.
Big Data Week is one of the most unique global platforms of interconnected community events focusing on the social, political, technological and commercial impacts of Big Data. It brings together a global community of data scientists, data technologies, data visualisers and data businesses spanning six major commercial, financial, social and technological sectors
- Media and Entertainment
- Health and Science
- Financial Sector
- Retail and FMCG
- Public and Government
- Social and Personal
The week connects a number of global cities through locally hosted meetups, events, networking functions, data visualisation demo’s, debates, discussion and hackathons. Events are designed to provide a platform for debate, discussion, education and inspiration – organised by people who are passionate and knowledgeable about data across our five sectors. Anyone is able to host and create an event during Big Data Week, making the platform completely open and community driven.
London is the host city for 2013 with others being announced in the coming weeks. To find out more, nominate a city, host an event or sponsor the festival visit www.bigdataweek.com
Founded in 2011 by Stewart Townsend as way to unite the global data communities through series of events and meetups. It has quickly become the ‘go to brand’ for a global perspective on Big Data and emerging trends. Big Data week is hosted across a number of major city hubs reaching across Europe, Americas, Australasia and Asia Pacific.
“I created Big Data Week to unite the global big data community, as a co-organiser of London based Big Data events I felt there was a gap between meetups across not just London but the globe, communities tended to stay in one part of the Big Data landscape and thus the idea was born to bring together all the communities and networks across a week of events”
Stewart Townsend, Founder Big Data Week
“The role of data in business, health, science, technology, retail and entertainment will be a key differentiator for the organisations that succeed in the next digital wave. Big Data Week educates and creates new opportunities for organisations of all shapes and sizes in understanding what big data can do for them now and in the future. media140 are very excited to be able to participate in this global initiative”
Andrew Gregson, Founder media140 Worldwide
