Registration now open for Connections UK 2022

Registration is now open for the Connections UK conference for wargaming professionals on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 September 2022. This will again be remote but will help set the conditions for a return to a face-to-face conference in 2023.

The theme of this year’s conference will be ‘Becoming a seasoned wargaming practitioner’. We will offer a safe-to-fail environment where practitioners at all levels of experience can discuss and practise their art. ‘Grognard’ contributions will focus on practical top tips, including a session on the many mistakes and lessons we have painfully learned over the years. The Introduction to Wargaming Course remains available online, but will not be delivered during the 2022 conference. Following a successful hybrid seminar experiment in April, there will be at least one hybrid session.

Plenaries will use Zoom as the core medium, while parallel sessions will be delivered on the presenter’s platform of choice. Discord will take a back seat, but will be used for conference coordination and be available for private chat and networking.

Registration is via Eventbrite. The standard cost is £25, but there is a £10 ‘supported’ option for those who can’t stretch to £25. There is a cap of 120 places, and registration will close on Friday 2 September, so book your ticket now!

For more general information on Connections UK (including presentations from previous conferences), consult the Connections UK website. Connections Uk is a sponsor of the Derby House Principles on diversity and inclusion in professional wargaming.
