The UKSG Forum is one of the key benefits of being a UKSG member and attendance is therefore free to anyone working within a UKSG member organisation. In line with its charitable status, UKSG also wishes to encourage attendance by members of the wider community and therefore subsidises the event so that a nominal charge applies to non-members. 

Programme chairs: Katherine Rose, Magaly Bascones, Tim Leonard


What can I expect at the UKSG Forum?

  • sessions on best practice and interesting projects
  • ample, good-quality networking opportunities
  • a comprehensive exhibition

The Forum is the place for ideas, debate, provocations and short briefings. The programme consists of short lightning talks that provide “food for thought", appealing to a broad range of interests and levels.

"The short presentations made the day very flexible.  I was able to attend the sessions, switch to the exhibition."

"A laid back event, just right for networking, and a good combination of timings for lightning talks, meetings and networking."
