Meeting platform powered by


So how does this work?

This year’s event features talks and panels, fringe events, face-to-face meetings at dedicated meeting areas and zones through the MeetToMatch meeting platform, Big Indie Zone and Pavillion area filled with stands and tables, fringe events like Very Big Indie Pitch, Investor Connector and Publisher SpeedMatch.

Tickets are available to buy now.

When do I need to be available?

The event runs for two days from May 1st – 2nd. You can arrange meetings with other attendees at the conference venue via MeetToMatch. You can attend the sessions and watch our talks and panels in the track rooms. You will also be able to ask questions and participate in the discussions on stage.

How am I supposed to have meetings?

Once a meeting is scheduled, a table number or meeting zone will be allocated inside the venue and you can then meet at the agreed time. Meeting zones are clearly marked and there will be maps available around the venue. These meetings must be held during venue opening hours 9:00 am – 5:30 pm.

What about the fringe events?

No event would be complete without the traditional side events. We will be running a bunch of activities during the week, including Very Big Indie Pitch, Publisher SpeedMatch, and Investor Connector meetings.

These have their own sign-up processes, and you need to apply and be eligible – see the links in the “What’s on?” menu above. If you’re involved in a fringe event, you need to apply using the relevant form and then wait to be contacted by the event manager with specific details for getting involved. If you’re unsure if you’ve registered, contact [email protected] with the title ‘Fringe event question’.
