Map Camp London 2019, 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 other mappers from across the globe. The original 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 accommodate 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.

Early bird tickets are limited to the first 300. We do run a diversity campaign and we aim for not only 50% participation of men and women in the speaker line up but attendees. For the last two years, we've achieved a 50% balance in speakers but attendance has been around 30% - 35% women. We will be doubling our efforts this year and extending the programme further.
Ticket provides entry to the event, breakfast, lunch, coffee and all refreshments. It also includes all sessions and keynotes plus access to all materials produced plus any welcome pack.
To make sponsorship easy, we've added a few sponsorship tickets:
