Creative Tactics


New for Beyond 2019, Creative Tactics is part of the main conference programme.

We’re looking to highlight the next wave of creative companies building valuable businesses using AI, Machine Learning and data-driven techniques in and supporting the creative industries.

This is your chance to tell the story of your company, project or service and how it balances social, cultural and environmental values with economic value to over 350 pioneers, researchers, businesses, supporting institutions and government delegates.

Open to new creative startups, Creative Tactics, is a series of five minute presentations on the main stage at Beyond.


Successful applicants will have a 5 minute slot at the Beyond Conference at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh on the 20-21 November 2019. Applicants will receive a complimentary ticket to attend the full Beyond Conference.

Session timings will be confirmed in the two weeks leading up to the event. Applicants will be responsible for their own travel, accommodation and other expenses.
