Networking Scheme

The Networking Scheme allows delegates to communicate with each other in advance of the conference and arrange meetings.

To take part, please tick the relevant box when registering or contact registration@ilmc.com. Once live, members will be sent details of how to access it.

The contact details for all delegates are listed in the Globetrotters Guide (which you will receive upon your arrival at ILMC) but the Networking Scheme is the only way to access each other's details in advance.

The adult-in-charge of the Networking Scheme is Tom Hopewell, who will be able to advise you on getting the most out of your weekend, and will be on hand to make the odd introduction, if necessary.

A full listing of the contestants that are participating in the Networking Scheme can be seen by clicking on the button below. This list will be updated weekly until the conference takes place.

Leaflet Table

The leaflet table provides a cost-effective way to market your company to other Game of Live contestants. Situated in a prime location, its placement makes sure you catch the passing crowd both coming and going. The cost of promoting your services or product (either a leaflet or other marketing materials) on the leaflet table is £400 with all proceeds going to The Nikos Fund, which this year is raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Tick the Leaflet Table box on the online Registration Form or contact registration@ilmc.com.

The Nikos Fund

The Nikos Fund

Each year, The Nikos Fund raises money for a chosen registered charity to commemorate the life and contribution to the ILMC of one of our founding members, the late Nikos Sachpasidis.

Every delegate automatically makes a donation to The Nikos Fund just by registering for the conference but there will be additional opportunities to further swell the coffers by giving generously via the Nikos Fund collection tins, strategically placed around the Royal Garden Hotel and occasionally shaken loudly in your face during the conference.

ILMC 32's charity of choice is the Teenage Cancer Trust, whose long-term patrons include The Who's Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. Teenage Cancer Trust is a cancer care and support charity in the UK that exists to improve the cancer experience of young people aged 13–24.
