TechCrunch Disrupt Touches Down in London

The city of London enjoys a formidable reputation as a fast-growing startup ecosystem - and now, it has a global tech media franchise to further speak to that.

We're excited to announce that London will be host city for the second TechCrunch DISRUPT Europe. Over the past few years, the city has built its technology credentials to offer entrepreneurs a fantastic environment to grow digital businesses - and we believe the capital is the perfect destination as TechCrunch continues to expand its coverage and presence globally.

Taking place at the Old Billingsgate in East London, our conference kicks-off with the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon on October 18, followed by two days of on-stage interviews and panels with some of the biggest names in tech. The speakers will not only provide insight and advice, but give first-hand knowledge on what it takes to build an industry-leading company.

Disrupt London will also welcome Startup Battlefield - where competitors pitch their companies live and on stage to innovators, investors and influencers in the tech community - and Startup Alley, which offers another way for early-stage companies to gain exposure with a format that encourages both exhibiting and networking, as well as high visibility.

AOL Partners with Promote Iceland to Launch Inspirational Campaign

In partnership with Promote Iceland, today we've launched an innovative cross-platform campaign, Inspired by Iceland, that will raise awareness around Iceland as a year-round holiday destination by delivering inspirational content spanning our editorial sites and AOL advertising platforms.

Inspired by Iceland is the first Europe-wide marketing campaign that fully integrates a comprehensive suite of AOL advertising products, creative solutions and innovative platforms – including the first Project Devil ad with a live camera feed. Working hand-in-hand with the client and agencies from the outset, we've been able to push the envelope in our creative efforts in delivering a campaign that's groundbreaking and sure to make an impact with our users.

The campaign also marks the launch of The Huffington Post UK Inspiration, a new section of HuffPost UK that enables brands to communicate directly with prospective consumers via video, blogs and social media. The section goes live today with a number of exclusive blogs and interactive competitions lined up to begin next week.
