Agile conference is a sell out


Cornish technology and business conference Agile on the Beach has announced that for the first year the event is sold out.

2013 has seen a surge in ticket sales, with the total tickets sold for the third annual conference tripling. The conference (September 5-6) has also attracted national high profile attendees from organisations such as the Met Office and BBC.

210 delegates, including 30 national and international speakers, will learn the latest in Agile thinking at the conference at Falmouth University’s Tremough campus, which aims to explore Agile methodologies in terms of their technical and business application.

The conference has also attracted 70 local delegates to explore what Agile can mean for their businesses. Agile practices are used in some big organisations internationally, but the high level of local attendees shows that Cornwall businesses are adopting these innovative techniques as well.

Toby Parkins, director of the conference, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have sold out the conference. The Agile on the Beach team are currently reviewing capacity for the two days and will be operating a waiting list for those who wish to attend but have been unable to secure a ticket.”

Anna Penrose, from event sponsor Unlocking Potential, added: “It’s fantastic news that Cornwall is attracting more than 200 businesses to this innovative two-day conference. Not only does the level of interest demonstrate the quality of speakers we’ve got lined up to talk about Agile but also the strength of collaboration in Cornwall which is at the heart of Agile on the Beach.”

Although the event has sold out, email here if you would like to be added to the waiting list.
