Closing Down

It is with great sadness that we officially announce the end of WAIT 2015 before it has even begun.

Due to a number of reasons, personal, professional and relating the current conference environment an official decision was made to cancel the event.

Making this choice was not an easy one. We took a lot of time to consider every aspect of the conference, our plans and what we wanted to achieve before any formal decision was made.

We wanted the conference to be powered by the community and we were not let down. The interest and support we received caught us by surprise and kept us going for as long as we did. To everyone who supported us, in any shape or form, THANK YOU.

In total we received 68 session submissions from 33 speakers - rather impressive for a brand new conference with no history backing it up. To each and every one of those people another huge thank you and we look forward to seeing your names listed on other conferences sites in the near future.

We sincerely apologise if this has caused any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding, patience and support.

For alternative conference options make sure you check out Lanyrd for all upcoming conferences in June (, or UpFront Conf ( in Manchester in May.
