Theatre Conference 2024 announced

Save the date! Join us at the Southbank Centre on 3 June for the Theatre Conference 2024.

The Theatre Conference is the UK’s premier event created for the industry, by the industry, an opportunity for Society of London Theatre (SOLT) and UK Theatre members to come together face-to-face to shape the future of theatre at London’s iconic Southbank Centre
If you run a venue or produce theatre, you need to be there to network, do business and collaborate, exploring solutions to the issues facing the sector today and beyond.

The programme, designed with and for SOLT & UK Theatre members, will include compelling keynote speeches and panel discussions covering key topics that profoundly impact our industry, including business growth, sustainability and people management. 

Throughout the day, plenty of networking opportunities will complement the panels and presentations, allowing attendees to continue the session conversations and collaborate to find solutions. 

Open all day, the Marketplace will allow you to meet the companies offering tools and technology to innovate the work that you do.
Plus, new for 2024: 

  • Speed Networking – connect with new people from across the sector 
  • Members Lounge* – do business and catch up with colleagues  
  • Member Surgeries* – meet the SOLT and UK Theatre team to seek support and advice on everything from HR to sustainability and more
