Meetings are at the heart of what SMPTE and so SMPTE hold meetings wherever there are cluster of members –

  • South – Basingstoke Winchester Southampton corridor
  • Midlands – around Birmingham
  • North West -  Salford, Liverpool, Leeds
  • East -  Ipswich Cambridge Colchester Ely

As well as the Monthly meetings in London- we meet where members work.

The UK covers all aspects of media technology – and thus the speakers  we invite cover a wide range of subjects – but always with a very practical approach.

All our meetings start at about 18h15 with a gathering over Ample refreshments – so that we can meet each other – particularly   to introduce those new to our industries and we then move to the formal business at 19h00-  we hope to be winding up discussion just after 20h30.

Those meetings  open for registration have hyperlinks to their own page where you can read the synopsis and further details.

We require all attendees to register for the meeting

This is so we have lists for security at the venue, can judge the quantity of Ample refreshments– and to prevent overcrowding
In the last session we had about half our meetings oversubscribed – and on one meeting we moved the planned room twice – and were still full!!!
