REGIONAL BRIEFING

Map Camp 2018

What is Map Camp?
It started as a tweet from Simon Wardley asking if anyone would like to have "a small meetup in London on mapping". It had so much interest that it quickly turned into a full day event. Map Camp is now a series of events including workshops and talks about mapping techniques used in organisations. It’s a community event driven by real practitioners.
 
This second Map Camp taking place in London consists of three main parts:
  • Main Hall for Keynotes and Sessions
  • An Un-Conference Area - this time in a large room rather than a crypt!
  • Meet the Speakers Coffee Area
Map Camp 2018 has an outstanding speaker line-up already scheduled, and more to be announced.
