Last week Lloyd & I attended and spoke at #Atomicon19 and it was incredible.
Andrew & Pete may be our marketing frenemies, but we have to give it to them, they pulled off an absolute banger of an event.
In this article I’m going to list 10 reasons why you should book to go to Atomicon now (especially while there is a flash sale on until this Friday with 80% off tickets, only £129+VAT).
DISCLAIMER: Andrew and Pete paid us £2.50 to write this list of reasons to go to their event.
WOW!#ATOMICON19 is going to be incredible – look at this setup!

Multiple people I spoke to mentioned how they loved the ‘small details’ included at the event. Things like mouthwash in the toilets, the ‘survival guide’, custom branded cupcakes, fire eaters at the party, the added ‘Beernote’ at the final party and lots more.
If you’re reading some of those and thinking to yourself, ‘what the F is that?’, then you’ll have to come to Atomicon 2020 to find out.

Something I noticed at Atomicon that was different to any other event I’ve been to, is how willing everyone is to start conversations with each other.
I think a big part of this is down to Andrew & Pete’s encouragement to ‘have fun’ and make friends throughout the event.
If you come to Atomicon knowing no one, you will leave with some great friends. I personally made really great friends with a number of people and had some incredible chats. Shout out to Eric from Membermouse, Julian Laverty and Ess Green who I ended up spending a lot of time with.
If you like partying, you’re going to love the socials Andrew and Pete put on. They have plenty of tricks up their sleeve to ensure you have a good time, like Jon Burkhart‘s surprise Beernote – I’ve never seen anything like it!

You know those events you go to when the speakers stay in a room at the back, come on to speak and then head back into their speaker room? Yeh, this event is the opposite of that.
All the speakers sit in the audience and spend their time hanging out with everyone at the event. I ended up in a club with Julian and Ess (who I met that night) until the early hours of the morning. It was wicked!
The venue this year was great, but have you seen the venue for next year!? WOW is all I can say. Take a look.
The staff, the delegates, the speakers all made this event what it was. trust me, you’ll be welcomed with open arms and a big fat smile.
Speaking at Atomicon didn’t feel like work to me, it felt like a 2-day party! If there’s one thing I can promise, it’s that Andrew and Pete and the whole crew will make sure you have fun.
Both Lloyd, Ida and I will be there! If you’re wondering where Lloyd and I are, we’ll be sipping champagne in the speakers lounge looking down at the
On a serious note, we’d love to meet you there, learn together and get to know each other. We’ll be at all the socials, the whole event and more.
Book your ticket right now whilst they are 80% off (£129+VAT). This offer ends in 3 days and the tickets go up to £649+VAT which is still great value.
