Attendee Tips

Be careful when scheduling meetings and plotting your conference sessions - try to make everything toward one venue as much as possible, otherwise too much time is spent walking between venues. Speak to someone who's been recently about where to set up meeting points and hold meetings.”

Decide if your priority is to attend the sessions or your meetings - because in the end, one of these will have to give preference - in three days, there's just not enough time to achieve it all.

Local producers & broadcasters are busy - so perhaps if you can arrive the week earlier, before the other internationals arrive, this might open up more opportunities with those that live in London. Alternatively staying longer, but everyone is a bit pitch weary after the event so arriving before is probably a wiser move.”

Make the most of the sessions, as they are very informative and inspiring. They cover creative and financing issues and are very much up to the moment.”

Be open to random introductions. Have your short pitches ready at the front of your mind as you never know when you will be able to pop them into a conversation. And rely on your fellow Australians for introductions, and introduce them to your contacts in turn.
