ECA Conference 2023

Event Cinema: A Focus on the Future

The Event Cinema Association’s (ECA) annual conference – now its tenth year – will take place on Tuesday 28 November at Cineworld at The O2 in London.  This year has been phenomenal for event cinema, with the strongest box office since the pandemic and we still have a more exciting events to come in the final months of 2023. 

This past year has given us plenty to think about and discuss. The full schedule and timings can now be found below.
