Big Data Week is the leading global platform of interconnected community events focusing on the social, political, technological impacts of 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.

The festival connects a number of global cities through locally hosted meetups, events, networking functions, data visualisation demos, debates, discussion and hackathons. Events are designed to provide a platform to educate, inform and inspire – organised by people who are passionate and knowledgeable about data.
