What makes TCUK different?
TCUK is a conference with a unique feel. Hosted by the ISTC, it is focused on strengthening our Technical Communication community. The committment to high-quality, practicable learning is shown in the carefully curated and varied programme. Core to the philosophy of TCUK, however, is our dedication to creating a welcoming, safe environment that encourages connection between all attendees: delegates, speakers and sponsors.
This unique blend of community and learning, of networking and CPD, makes TCUK a great way to grow your business, develop your staff, and (just as importantly) leave you feeling inspired and uplifted.
Organised by a team of volunteers from the community, supported by sponsors who understand and serve the community, and attended by people who enjoy being part of the community, you are sure to come away with rewarding connections and new insights.
