Description

Map Camp London 2019, Sadler's Wells Theatre, 15th October.
This is our third Map Camp in London and it is kindly sponsored by the Leading Edge Forum. Map Camp is a community run event, it consists of a series of lectures from renowned speakers with a coffee and networking area to meet others mappers from across the globe. We have a wonderful line up of speakers which will be announced shortly. The orginal event in 2017 was planned to be 30 people, we ended up with 180 and over 150 on a waiting list. In 2018, we planned for 350 people, we ended up with 450 and over 260 on a waiting list. This year, we have an even bigger venue in the hope that we might be able to accomodate everyone.

Map Camp is a safe environment for all and we will do everything we can to make sure that it is. If you’re planning on attending please read the code of conduct - http://www.map-camp.com/_pages/code_of_conduct/

What is Map Camp?
It started as a tweet from Simon Wardley asking if anyone would like to have "a small meetup in London on mapping". It had so much interest that it quickly turned into a full day event. Map Camp is now a series of events including workshops and talks about mapping techniques used in organisations. It’s a community event driven by real practitioners.

General
The schedule will altr over the next few weeks as additional speakers are added and titles firmed up. Early bird tickets are limited to the first 300. We do run a diversity campagin and we aim for not only 50% participation of men and women in the speaker lineup but attendees. For the last two years, we've achieved a 50% balance in speakers but attendence has been around 30% - 35% women. We will be doubling our efforts this year and extending the programme further.

Ticket prices
Early bird tickets are on a first come, first serve basis. There are 300 tickets available at £60+VAT.
** SOLD OUT

Standard price tickets will be available at £120+VAT until we run out of space.
** At current rates, we expect to run out of standard tickets by end of July. Please note, despite doubling capacity each year, the event has sold out and ended with a long waiting list. We will do what we can to accommodate more people if this happens again but this is a community run event with limited funds.

I've also put up a number of "I'm PRIVILEGED and I want to help fund Map Camp" ticket for those who can afford to contribute a bit more and help us fund our diversity campaigns and the event. If you're one of those fortunate few who mapping has benefited please help us pay it forward.

Ticket includes access to the venue, all speaking sessions, breakfast, lunch, coffee and all refreshments. As usual, we'll try and have a goodie bag with books, t-shirt etc - it all depends upon sponsorship.

Sponsorship.
We've been asked about sponsorship details, we will put something up soon. The event has grown far beyond any expectations and so we would appreciate the help including sponsoring of speakers. Anyone interested should contact jane.kingston@leadingedgeforum.com
