Winchester Unconference 

NOT business as usual!

Did you know that you can help Winchester become a premier business location by not doing business as usual? If you’re interested in finding out how, Winchester City Council is holding its first unconference on Friday 2 March at the Guildhall. It is completely free to attend for local business people and organisations of all sizes.

Theme: How can Winchester be a premier business location?

Date: Friday 2 March 2018

Time: 9.30am to 4pm

Venue: Guildhall Winchester, The Broadway, Winchester, SO23 9GH


The event is not a conventional business conference. There is no pre-defined agenda; instead delegates will pitch session themes to each other and these will form the programme for the day’s activities. This is because everyone is equal in importance at an unconference, and all participants will get the chance to have their say.

The event will focus on the theme: how can Winchester be a premier business location? It is a theme that is positively designed to stimulate innovative ideas. Participants will have the opportunity to network freely throughout the day.

The Winchester unconference is being organised by AHA Digital Ltd and supported by UKGovCamp. A light lunch will be provided and all costs are being covered by Winchester City Council and thanks to some generous business sponsorship.

Places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis, so early booking is recommended. To book your space visit Delegates who have signed up to the Winchester unconference are encouraged to talk about the event on social media using the hashtag #WinchBiz.

The official invitation can be downloaded from the column on the right. 

It is intended that the Council, working with AHA Digital, will organise a second event – a hack day – which will identify practical solutions to the issues explored at the Winchester unconference. 

If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities for either event, please contact Mark Braggins from AHA Digital Ltd at or phone 07743 817215.
