This is a post we didn’t expect to make, but we’ve had to make the difficult decision to close both the conference and the company behind it. For a variety of reasons, keeping them going isn’t viable for the team behind the event.

What an incredible journey it’s been during the past few years though. Over the 2 in person events and the very hastily put together distributed event we’re proud to have played a small part in shining a light on the awesome tech talent right here in the South West.


This is a quick post to highlight that the final videos from this years conference were published today. You can relive your favourite moments from the conference as well as catch up with any of the sessions that you missed via our YouTube channel.

Working with our speakers, we’ve also recorded some Q&A videos which will be uploaded in the coming weeks.

Happy watching.


Only a week has passed since we welcomed more than 1000 ticket holders and 7000+ drop-ins for the Future Sync 2020 broadcast. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank anyone who tuned in, whether for the whole broadcast or a single talk, for taking part in the rapidly pivoted conference.

You may have noticed we’ve been pretty quiet in recent weeks. That’s because we’ve been busy testing out streaming software, working with speakers to get the most out of the new format, designing layouts, sorting out prizes, arranging an after party as well as setting up a few extras to make the event more than a day watching YouTube clips. It’s been busy!

Over the 16th and 17th April, we’ll be broadcasting more than 15 talks on topics as diverse as resilient web…


More speakers announced

With only 46 days until Future Sync comes to Plymouth University on the 16th April, we thought we should share a handful more speakers from our 2020 lineup.

Plans for this years Future Sync conference are coming together nicely.
