Meetings are at the heart of what SMPTE is and so SMPTE UK section holds meetings
wherever there are cluster of members as well as the Monthly meetings in London-  
with a theme of "meeting 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.

Evening meetings are just that – a time for people across our industries to come together and meet over
"ample refreshments" - and then hear and discuss with speakers matters of importance.
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.

In 2017 we also list the meetings of the  Student Chapters - and key NaSTA meetings
- if you want to attend these you need to contact the oragansiser.

SMPTE UK section has two continuing themes during this year -


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