The creative, media and tech sector has long had a significant presence in West London. TechWest.London is our campaign to put a spotlight on this critical aspect of the sub-region’s economy, which is also a critical part of the supply chain to many other sectors.
46% of London’s broadcast sector jobs are in the Great West corridor, London Borough of Hounslow. That is why we helped form the Great West Creatives partnership, which is establishing one of the Mayor of London’s first creative enterprise zones in the capital.
The sector will only succeed with more investment in gigabit broadband, which is why we encouraged Openreach to invest in a pilot in Park Royal – the UK’s largest industrial estate and largest commercial ‘not spot’. Skills are also critical, which is why West London Business is a key partner with HCUC, Brunel University London, Fujitsu and Heathrow in launching the West London Institute for Technology.
