OpenCo London, to be held on 6 and 7 June, will see famous firms such as Google, Spotify and Mind Candy open their doors to visitors interested in understanding how innovative firms work.

Jargon will handle media relations with the national, technology, business and marketing press in the run-up to the event, which has previously been held in New York and San Francisco.

Jargon PR MD Simon Corbett said: ‘London’s Tech City contains some of the most innovative and forward-thinking technology companies in the world. We are thrilled to be supporting OpenCo on its first visit to the capital and provide not only support to a great client, but help promote London’s technological bright sparks.’

The event is billed as a mix between a business conference and an artist’s open studio, with the vibe of a music festival. It is backed by the Mayor of London, London & Partners and the Tech City Investment Organisation.
