Industry, The Practical Web Conference was held annually between 2012 and 2016 in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

Gavin Elliott, a Design Leader from the United Kingdom organised the event.

At Codeworks, Gavin organised DIBI (Design It. Build It.) in Newcastle in 2010 and 2011 bringing some of the most interesting and influential faces in our Industry to the North East of England. In 2012 Gavin stepped away to focus on creating a new event focused solely on delivering practical knowledge in a single track format.

Industry Conf launched in late 2012 and ran in April 2013 and has had three successful years since.

It’s unique in that there are a maximum of 150 places available for each event, a far smaller number than other events. And for good reason. The purpose of Industry is to deliver maximum impact to those who attend, and has many supporters who work with us every year who believe in what Industry is achieving.

It doesn’t stop with the event, soon it will be accompanied with a podcast, video series and jobs board.

Industry Conf will be back again in April 2016 for its fourth year.
