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

South – Basingstoke Winchester Southampton corridor
Midlands – around Birmingham and Nottingham Derby Leicester triangle
North West -  Salford, Liverpool, Leeds
East -  Ipswich Cambridge Colchester Ely

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

in the 2015-16 session we have new meeting locations in Loughborough, Leeds,  Reading and Ely

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.

Most of 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. Please Register Promptly

We are awaiting the meeting details from our Salford Cluster - (tell me more)
 planning meetings about every 6 weeks tailored to the needs of those who work in and around MediaCity:UK
