London 2017 was my first time at a CiviCon event so not sure what to expect, but I have been to many business conferences over the years. So, what was so different about this one? Essentially, nothing; held in a major city i.e. London, in a conference centre, a welcome desk with a goody bag and a programme, introduction, sessions – you get the picture!
It’s hard to put your finger on why it was different - better - but I am sure it has to do with the ethos of CiviCRM and why the organisers and attendees were there; a shared vision and a unified purpose.
What exactly was different? Well, as soon as I walked into the main conference room, I felt I was amongst friends, like-minded people.
Countdown to CiviCon Canberra, the first CiviCon in the southern hemisphere, is ticking along nicely. Less that 20 sleeps to go.
Very excited to get the sessions nailed down. You can view the list of topics and speakers here.
Keynote speaker will be Caroline Le Couteur, MLA, ACT Greens Member for Murrumbidgee (which means she is an MP for those who don't speak 'strine').
We are very excited for this year’s CiviCon UK which promises to be bigger and better than ever!
The full timetable is now available to view here.
We're excited to be hosting this year’s party at a very cool bar pub in Camden called Miusan. We will be heading there from 5:00pm and the bar is about a 5 min walk from the conference.
Wristbands will be handed out for complimentary drinks.

A big thank you to all our CiviCON UK Sponsors. Here's a special post from Gold Sponsor Yoti:
DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY: REGISTRATIONS IN SECONDS, LOGINS WITHOUT PASSWORDS AND MINIMISING DATA.
Over the last 15 years I’ve probably been responsible for around 50 or so websites or microsites that in some way or another have tried to gather people’s data. Either to enter into an event, join a forum or buy something. And like most other marketeers I’ve been obsessed by two things. Funnels and Data. i.e how easily are people signing up and how much do I now know about my customers. I’ve always known that by asking people for more information there was a danger people would drop out of my acquisition funnel but we marketeers are hungry for data. We want it all and we want it now.
