Agile on the Beach, Falmouth University

July 4 – 5, 2024

About the conference

Methodologies not technologies

Agile on the Beach is a conference devoted to delivering an environment for businesses and individuals at all stages of their digital transformation and Agile journey to thrive, grow and develop. We propagate innovative Agile methodologies through a community of thought leaders, visionaries and adopters, widening the Agile bubble and helping businesses and individuals to add meaningful value.

Our conference attracts attendees and speakers from all over the globe and includes two full days of talks, learning, workshops, networking and social events. We talk Software Delivery, Agility In Business, Team Working, Product Design & Management and run multiple workshops over both days.

Who should attend

If you’re working with Agile or are interested in how the Agile methodology can transform your business, career or personal life then come and join our community at our flagship event in Cornwall. Share your thoughts over toasted marshmallows on the beach and mix with the world’s brightest minds in Agile.

Agile on the Beach is held at the impressive Academy of Music and Theatrical Arts (AMATA) on the Falmouth University campus in Cornwall. Every year, more than 500 attendees enjoy some of the best conference facilities in the UK, not to mention Gyllyngvase beach and the Atlantic Ocean providing an impressive conference backdrop.
