Map Camp London 2019, 15th October
This is our third Map Camp in London and it is kindly sponsored by the Leading Leading Edge Forum, AWS, Rainmaker, InfoQ, Endava, Methods and Superstars. 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.

The Quiet Room
A dedicated space has been provided as a quiet room, to escape the noise and bustle of the conference.
In another first for Map Camp (sponsorship, larger event, environmental efforts, quiet space, etc.) - do remember this is a community run event and we're learning each year - we also have some pre-event activities happening.
The LEF has a mapping workshop on the 14th October which promises to provide an unmissable opportunity to apply Wardley mapping to a real business challenge. It's a ticketed event, so register on the LEF website if you're interested.
We've also booked a floor at the Pearl and Feather for an evening before meetup on the 14th October from 6:30pm. Do respond to @swardley's tweet on this, so we just have an idea of the numbers, if you're planning to attend. We have no sponsors which means it's a buy your own food and drink evening. Everything we've raised is being spent on the main event.
We are delighted to have additional sponsors for Map Camp this year. Our film sponsor (who is looking after the recording of sessions and publication online) is InfoQ. We're also pleased to announce that Endava, Methods and Superstars have become silver sponsors. Rainmaker is sponsoring our diversity efforts. Amazon Web Services (AWS) are sponsoring our climate efforts and lastly and certainly not least, the Leading Edge Forum is underwriting and sponsoring the entire event.
We can't emphasise enough how important sponsors are for enabling us to hold the event. Thank you.
Map Camp is a community driven event organised by a collection of individuals. All funds raised through ticket sales will be spent on providing Map Camp with any deficit covered by the Leading Edge Forum.
