Venue Information - The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists

The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists is the 100th livery company of the City of London, combining centuries-old tradition with a modern focus, energy and innovation.

Like all livery companies, we look to give something back to the industry and community, and focus on four pillars of activity:
Charity – we raise money and provide IT skills to improve lives through a range of charitable vehicles;
Education – we built Hammersmith Academy (with the Mercers) and support other schools;
Industry and Commerce – we help to promote and shape the IT industry and run several schemes (including with the Royal Signals) to smooth the path of men and women into the industry; and
Fellowship – where, simply, we have a full programme of social activity. We are the only one of the “new” livery companies to have its own hall, and in 2017 we celebrate our silver jubilee, 25 years after our grant of livery.

We are no longer accepting registration for this event
