London conference – there will be no internet livestreaming

There has been some speculation as to whether there might be internet livestreaming of the 22 presentations at the London conference. A number of people have held back from ordering tickets, in the hope of watching the presentations ‘live’ on the internet, at little or no cost. I can now confirm the conference presentations will not be livestreamed.

There are a number of reasons for the decision, but one key reason is the conference must be self-financing. This means we must maximise ticket sales, and livestreaming would reduce ticket sales. We wish it were otherwise, nothing would have given us more pleasure than livestreaming. Hopefully the day will come when demand for tickets for men’s issues conferences will be at a level that will allow for livestreaming to happen, but we’re not there yet.

We are, of course, sympathetic towards people who cannot attend the conference, for financial or other reasons. So we’ll be posting the presentations onto our YouTube channel in the course of the days and weeks following the event, once they’ve been edited. Hannah Wallen, an American Honey Badger, will be making an official record of the conference and associated activities, in terms of both a video and still photographs.

Video recording and taking of photographs will not be permitted in the conference room or adjoining covered balcony during the course of the conference, but the venue is a very large one, so people will have plenty of opportunities to take photographs and video footage outside those areas.

The list of speakers is here, and you can book your ticket(s) here. It is currently planned to stop selling tickets at 12:00 GMT on 5 June, giving us sufficient time to have the high-security passes produced. Tickets won’t be available to buy at the conference.

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
