Big Ideas for Small Devices.

November 19th, 2012 - Cardiff

Sold out! - join our waitlist

Handheld is the conference for all things mobile, web and native. This is what makes us different to all of the other conferences out there, and let’s be honest, there are a lot.

We’re also straddling the fence between hard code and less techy topics so we appeal to designers and developers. There’s something for everyone!

Our line up of industry experts will be sharing their knowledge and expertise with plenty of practical advice to inspire you and apply to your day jobs. No blue sky thinking here folks.

We’ve also made sure you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions and chat to the speakers and fellow attendees. It’ll be a great chance to make new connections with like minded folk.


Our lineup, a good looking and talented bunch

We’re really chuffed with the folk who have agreed to talk at Handheld 2012. We think you’ll be impressed too.


A big posh hotel on the waterfront. Croeso.

Wales? Which part of England is that?

There are plenty of conferences happening all around the UK but until this year there were none in Wales. Land of rolling green hills, sheep and song, Wales is a creative hub with fantastic facilities and so we’re super proud to welcome you all to Cardiff for Handheld.

Our venue, the St David’s Hotel and Spa, is only a hop, skip and a jump across the bridge from Bristol (although you will have to pay a toll to enter, but we’re worth it). The natives also speak english and we have running water and electricity.

The hotel is a 5 star waterfront gem and the facilities are second to none. We’re confident you’ll like it here whether coming for the day or for a longer stay.
