About CommCon

Commcon is the first UK-based conference for the RTC community (and the second in Europe). It's a conference run by the community itself, which means that everyone is equal and no one is given any special treatment over their fellow delegates.

CommCon will be a little different to the conferences you're used to attending; it will be a bringing together of the best RTC minds from all over the world in one residential setting in the English countryside near Gatwick airport - the first residential conference of its kind in the Open-Source RTC community. You'll have the opportunity to meet with colleagues, friends and peers, as well as making new connections with people in the industry, in an inclusive, collaborative and friendly environment.

Venue

Wotton House is a 4-star estate hotel near Dorking in Surrey, just 16 miles from Gatwick Airport. It’s a lovely blend of original and modern features, offering an up-to-date conference facility in amongst amazing grounds and rooms that give you the quintessential English country estate experience. For some downtime and relaxation, they offer the option of borrowing some Hunter wellies or a bicycle to explore their 13 acres of land. There are on-site Italian gardens and Roman temples to explore, and even a grotto or two. If the outdoors isn’t your thing, they have a pool and gym for you to make full use of during your stay.

Wotton House is just 20 minutes from J9 of the M25 and a short 10 minute car journey from Dorking train station, which offers connections to Gatwick Airport within 20 minutes and London City Centre within an hour.

If you want to know more about Wotton House before you arrive, you can take a tour of the estate.

Event FAQs

Because this is our first year we've taken the decision to not offer early bird pricing. The event is being run by the community, for the community. We're not going to make a profit out of the event; and so the price attendees are being asked to pay, is what it costs to run the event.

Dress comfortably without offending others

We can offer a reduced rate set of tickets to attendees that want to share with a colleague/friend. Instead of a ticket costing £1600, we can offer you a ticket price of £1400 - you'll need to buy 2 of these discounted tickets which are only available by contacting us directly at contact@commcon.xyz

This is not something we have organised right now, but if enough attendees are interested in being picked up from a local airport; we'd consider putting on a shuttle service of some kind.

Absolutely! Parking is free of charge for all attendees.

We're currently talking to very smart VAT people who say you can't claim back the VAT because of the nature of the event, we'll let you know if this changes.

Just reach out to us at contact@commcon.xyz and we'll be happy to help.
