Why Attend

We'll discuss and share key topics and challenges for the rebirth of local tech communities.

Running hybrid events

From the transition to virtual, to the rebirth of local about to take place. Expectations have evolved, running hybrid events (on+offline) is now key for attendees and sponsors.

Impact beyond local

With virtual/hybrid events recorded we have the possibility to contribute local insights to your global niche. And what this means for GDPR challenges with video recording in events.

Sustainable best practices

Finding your edge as an organiser, consistent events structure, content types or unique agendas. What are some of the common themes and best practices enabling successful groups.

"by design" when rebuilding?

"By design" is an initiative created by the team at Yard to explore what an ideal "Rebuild" of local communities would look like with a blank canvas: diverse, social good, sustainable, safe.

Speakers, sponsors & venues

We know.. bumps in our annual agenda often come from the above. Consistent stream of relevant speakers, simpler sponsor transactions and marrying those timelines with venue dates.
