Google has announced that it will be hosting an annual conference for corporate networkers.
The event will be called ‘corporate networking due’, and it will run from January 6th to January 7th.
The event is being hosted by Hedge Fund & Technology, a London-based fund.
“Google is always looking for ways to deliver more value to our partners, and we’re excited to have this opportunity to deliver some great networking for our partners,” Hollywood actress Holly Hunter tweeted.
In a post on its Facebook page, the event’s organizers said the conference would include networking events for “business leaders and their team, and individuals in their industry”.
“Our event is for the best in networking, with a focus on helping companies grow, and connecting our global network to make the most of our common work experiences,” the post said.
“We’ll be bringing together business leaders from around the world to share insights on the business of business, and the opportunities we are seeing in the industry.”
The conference is scheduled to run from 5pm on January 6, and will be livestreamed on YouTube.
Google did not say whether it would be hosting its own conference or partner events.
A conference of this kind, or one featuring corporate networking, is usually a part of the annual Google I/O conference, which takes place in San Francisco on May 5-6.
Google has also held networking events in the past, including a series of ‘Ask Me Anything’ sessions on Reddit in February and a series called ‘Google Developer Connect’ in March.
There is also an event called Google IOT on the company’s website that covers everything from cloud computing to mobile, which is aimed at developers and their teams.
Google has previously held conferences in the US and other countries, but events have not yet taken place in the UK, and it is not clear when the event will take place.
Google has already held two events in London.
The company held an event at the London School of Economics in May, where attendees got to ask questions to speakers including Google’s CEO Larry Page and Google’s VP of Engineering Jeff Dean.
A third event at a different venue, the London Science Museum, took place in June.
Google is currently holding a number of business networking events across the world, including the Google I/o conference in San Diego and the Facebook I/os event in Berlin.
Google did add that its London event will not be held on Google Earth, and that it would instead host its own event on the Google Play Store.
