Across two days, The Big Screen Experience: the Next Chapter will look at what more the cinema sector might do to re-engage audiences following the COVID-19 pandemic, exploring the contribution made by programming, marketing, technology and data and analytics amongst other elements.

The event is expected to attract a wide range of professionals from across the cinema industry, including not just UKCA members but also colleagues from film distribution and those working across the wider media, retail and technology sectors.

For the first time the UK Cinema Association will be offering online as well as ‘physical’ attendance at the event, streaming all key sessions to participants.

The full programme for the event will be posted here shortly, but in the meantime a current draft can be found here

Aiming to make each UKCA conference accessible to the widest range of members and colleagues, the Association tries to keep ticket prices as low as possible. To do so it relies on the generous sponsorship support of industry partners.

Should your company be interested in supporting the event, we are able once again to offer a range of sponsorship opportunities for you to consider, available for each day unless otherwise stated. Further details on these can be found by clicking the tab below.

We are also happy to discuss and accept offers of in-kind support.

View Sponsorship Packages


In line with its sustainability policy, this year the Association plans to take a step forward in reducing the environmental impact of our conference.

In particular we will be looking to reduce the amount of unnecessary plastic and paper waste generated. To help achieve this, we will avoid producing printed materials for the event, creating a dedicated digital hub to host information about the conference, including the programme, delegate list, sponsor av and adverts

We will also be making some changes to our usual sponsorship packages, in particular – for reasons of COVID safety as well as environmental impact – no longer offering conference ‘goody bags’. (Sponsors should be reassured that this will not impact on your company’s visibility with delegates).
