The EA User Group is back – May 24th 2022!

Your chance to come and share your knowledge and experience with the the EA community - In Real Life!

Join us

We’re looking forward to hearing from EA experts, and novices, about what they have been doing over the last 2 years. And it will be great to meet up and connect with each other face to face.

There was an awesome line-up of speakers planned for the 2020 event, and we were all really disappointed to have to cancel it, so it’s great to have an opportunity this year. Do you have something to say – maybe the same story, maybe a new one? See the speakers info below…

What happens in Reading stays in Reading

We recognise that some may not be able or willing to travel, so we’re choosing to run a slimmed-down event – over just one day and with two streams of talks. There will also be a panel discussion – where you can ask all those questions you’ve encountered since 2020.

The event won’t be live-streamed, and presentations won’t be published on-line afterwards, so only those people ‘in the room’ will have exclusive access to the event.

So get your tickets today to make sure you don’t miss out.



We’ve booked the conference suite at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Caversham, Reading – with good road and rail links to London and Heathrow. And there’s a wide terrace overlooking the river for open air networking if the weather is good.

  • Start: 9.00 for 9.30am
  • Finish: by 5pm
  • £77.50 per person, including pastries/refreshments and a hot buffet lunch.   BOOK NOW
  • There are a few rooms available at the hotel at a reduced conference rate – ask us for a code – and book early to avoid disappointment!
  • And there are plenty of other choices in walking distance

Call for Speakers

We will split the tracks in the two rooms roughly into ‘Experiences’ and ‘Ideas’, though as in previous years, we don’t expect all talks to fit neatly into these categories.

To get you started, here are some ideas:

  • How did your use of EA change during the lockdowns ?
  • ‘Most useful bits of EA16’. There won’t be the normal, exhaustive ‘all the features of the new release’ session, but if anyone would like to do a quick 45 minutes on the best bits of V16, that would be helpful
  • Anyone used a Sparx in the Cloud implementation? What was your experience ?
  • Same for Prolaborate: do we have any examples of what’s possible?
  • And don’t forget the tutorial sessions. Over the years, some of our most popular sessions have been straightforward ‘how to do … in EA’ sessions, especially useful for newbies. I even taught Geert something once…
  • ..and anything else you think our community will be interested in. Remember, it doesn’t have to be a story of success and brilliance: a thoughtful failure, with some lessons learned, is much more valuable.

We’d especially like to hear from new speakers – those who haven’t spoken at an EAUG event before. If that’s you, don’t be afraid – we’re a friendly crowd, and keen to learn. Ian is available to coach new speakers, and is happy to review potential talks for content (and length…)

Talks need to fit into a 45 minute slot, so plan to talk for around 35 minutes to leave time for questions.

(PS speakers will have a £77.50 discount applied to their ticket price)

Contact Ian with your proposed presentation topics and abstracts.
