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. We have a wonderful line up of speakers which will be announced shortly. 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.
