Delegates

The latest 2017 delegates’ list is published below and will be updated regularly.
For previous delegates’ list please refer to the archive.

In the past seven years over 350 Comedy Industry Professionals from 25 different countries attended the Conference. Together they are working in the Comedy sector across at least 30 different territories. With the UK being the leading region, over the years delegates have shared experiences and developed new markets as a direct result of attending the event. Whilst every year new first time introductions are still being made, the event has also become a place to catch up with colleagues and friends in person and to put faces to names.

The Conference is for professionals in the international Comedy Industry, such as Agents, Festivals, Managers, Media, Promoters, Services (such as Ticketing, Transport & Travel, PR, Marketing and Production companies) and last but not least Venues who have an interest in developing their network and knowledge within the UK and worldwide. Despite the main focus of the event being on Live Stand-up Comedy, there is opportunity to discuss and compare other art forms, genres and media. We welcome Comedy Professionals such as internet entrepreneurs, marketing, PR specialists and Radio/TV producers, venues with an interest to add Comedy to their programming and professionals from the theatre & music industry to join the discussions, learn and share the knowledge.

Panellists will be selected based on the panel topics in close liaison with the panel chair person and panel specific associates, however the dialogue takes place in the room between all attendees.
