Key details

What you need to know

Turing Fest is a cross-functional tech conference, built around three tracks, each with a broad inter-disciplinary lens:

  • We cover a lot of ground, from a lot of different angles. We’re open to talks that address any aspect of how to build and grow tech businesses or software products

  • The Turing Fest audience is a diverse mix of individual contributors, execs and founders from startups and scale-ups, as well as investors, agencies and forward-thinking corporates

  • This is not the place to pitch your product. We want presentations that educate and entertain — and that meaningfully help our audience get better at what they do

  • We prize actionable insight and practical takeaways above all else: we’re aiming for the sweet spot between ‘blue-sky thinking’ and ‘way down in the weeds’

  • This isn’t the place for 101-level talks: our audience is smart and experienced, and we don’t talk down to them

If you feel you’ve got what it takes share your message and insights on stage at Europe’s best cross-functional tech conference, we’d love to hear from you!

  • We generally cover travel costs to Edinburgh for speakers whose companies can’t, and provide accommodation for all speakers. We don’t offer a speaker fee

  • We are committed to increasing diversity in our lineups, so we strongly encourage applications from speakers from traditionally under-represented groups

  • It’s important to us that Turing Fest is a welcoming and inclusive environment for all, so everyone — including speakers — are expected to abide by our code of conduct

  • We generally prefer presentations to be unique to Turing Fest, or not to have been previously presented in the UK
