What is Camp Alphaville?

Ideas, like jokes, are found at the edge of things. They come with perspective, a moment to relax, or rubbing up against something new.

With Camp Alphaville the inspiration was the classic British music festival with an array of stages, activity and distractions. We want to give you hard choices, between listening to the rock stars on the main platform and the chance to talk to the heavy hitters in a side tent. You should be able to stumble on conversations about how restaurant economics really work or what happens to finance as the machines get smarter, and sample some of the latest technology first hand.

We also want it to be democratic, with strategists, academics, punters, robots and more rubbing shoulders. July 1 at the Royal Artillery Company grounds in London. Sign up here to soak it all in, there’s a sample of what we’ll be discussing below the fold. Read more

Camp Alphaville 2015, at the Honourable Artillery Company on July 1, will be like last year only more so. Big thinkers, bigger igloos, more space, FinTech, finance, fun and possibly even some sun.

Not to mention scores of speakers and panelists, strategists, investors, academics, analysts, robots, drones, smartarses, dancers, corporate financiers, magicians, convicts… Read more

On the legalities of running a Markets Live session at Camp Alphaville…

Open question here.

You’ll have seen from the main stage rundown for Camp AV that myself and Bryce are planning to do our regular Markets Live session under canvas on July 2, at the Honourable Artillery Company grounds.

But answer this:

If we share some price-sensitive RAW information — and attendees at Camp AV are able to see (and maybe act on) this info before it is transmitted to the regular Markets Live Rabble — are those attendees on the right or wrong side of the market abuse regime? Read more
