INTERFACE 2016 will be taking place in Reading on 24 November at The Concert Hall.

View the summary document of INTERFACE 2014 below.
Prior to INTERFACE the cultural partners indicate what areas of work they will be commissioning in the next 12 months. The digital suppliers complete an application indicating their specialisms. The two lists are cross referenced to create a bespoke appointment programme.
Cultural partners and digital suppliers each send one or two delegates. The delegates each have curated meetings, plus access to a main networking space. Partners must meet two criteria. Firstly, they must have commissioning budgets for digital and media work in the next twelve months. Secondly, they must agree to send a senior decision maker and/or budget holder. This means that every INTERFACE meeting is a genuine business opportunity.
The partners and digital suppliers pay nothing to attend. Costs for running the event are covered by Globe Education and sponsorship and financial support within the visited region.
