Attend ACCU 2024 Online

22nd March 2024 at 18:57

This year we have partnered with Digital Medium to offer an online conference experience for ACCU 2024. What does that look like?

Well, first we will stream all in-person sessions live, so you can attend at the same time as in-person attendees, as well as other online attendees. We have a conference Discord where discussion on the sessions can happen in dedicated channels, so you'll feel connected to other attendees - whether in-person or online. And you won't even get to miss the venue as it has been digitally recreated in Gather, so you can walk the halls, interact with other attendees through proximity based video chats, and even visit sponsor booths.

See the dedicated online conference sub-site for more details.

Lightning Talks

One of the highlights of the ACCU conference are the three evening lightning talk sessions, where any attendee can deliver a five minute talk. That includes online attendees! Lightning talks will be arranged during the week of the event, but get thinking about what you might want to present now!

Open Content and Online Posters

Exclusive to the online conference we're offering Open Content sessions, where participants can present extra content without going through the call for speakers, and the facility to showcase and present online posters.

Cost effective

For most of us being at the venue in-person offers the most immersive experience, but during the pandemic we were forced to learn how to run compelling online experiences that bring as much of the in-person experience as we can, while also embracing the best of what it means to be online.

So if you're unable to make it to Bristol physically our online event is a great way to still join us!

It's also considerably cheaper, so may also be an option if you are not able to afford a full, in-person, ticket (or the cost of travel and accommodation). Starting at £180 (inc. VAT) for ACCU members (£90 for students) this is our cheapest ticket!


In addition to all the above benefits, the online ticket gives you access to the on-demand recordings of the sessions shortly after they are recorded! These are unedited archives of what was streamed live, but will continue to be available until the edited productions are uploaded to YouTube - usually a month or more after the conference has ended.

So whatever your reasons and whatever you are looking to get out of it, get your online tickets, today.
