FAQs

Do I need to book events that are compulsory to my group?

No. If your group is listed as compulsory on the event you don’t need to book a ticket. Make sure you check with your tutor whether you need to attend online or in person.

If you are due to attend a compulsory event online, you will receive the link to access the talk 48 hours before the event is due to start.

I’ve booked a ticket, what next?

After you’ve booked a ticket through Eventbrite, you’ll receive an email confirmation.

If you have booked an in person ticket, then you will need to make your way to the venue on the day of the event.

If you have booked an online ticket, then you will receive a link to access the talk 48 hours before the event is due to start. Make sure you keep checking your student email address.

My event is online, do I need a Zoom account?

Yes you do. In order to take registers at IW22 events we require all students to sign in to Zoom before attending. You will need to create a free Zoom account using your student email address before attending any online Industry Week talk.

I’m a student at Confetti, are there compulsory talks?

Yes, there are compulsory groups. If you’re not sure about your compulsory events, please talk to your tutor.

Some compulsory events will be online, and some will be in person – make sure you check with your tutor how you need to attend.

Aside from these, make sure you fill your boots! We have guests from across the globe this year – some of the biggest names in industry – so make sure you don’t miss out.

What platform are you using to broadcast the talks?

Most of our talks will be broadcast live via Zoom, or accessible via Microsoft Teams.

Can I invite a friend to a live talk who isn’t studying at Confetti?

Unless the talk is advertised as being open to the general public, only Confetti staff and students (or our partners, where applicable) will be able to access a talk.

Our guests are giving up their time to share their insights and expertise to help our students, so it’s important that you don’t share an event link.

I don’t study at Confetti but I’d really like to watch a talk – is that possible?

Some of our talks will be available either to watch live or OnDemand. We’ll make it clear which talks those are. If you’re from one of our partners, we’ll be in touch with more information.

I’m a student at Confetti, can I watch any of the talks?

Yes you can. The creative industries is a collaborative community, and Confetti is no different. If you’ve got a clash with talks, don’t worry – a lot of our talks will be available to watch On Demand.

What’s the format of the events?

The majority of the events will be talks and interviews, with a chance for you to ask questions – make sure you do your research!

We also have some games, challenges and workshops – check out the event details on the What’s On pages.

Can I record any of the events?

No. Anyone watching a live broadcast are politely asked not to record any footage for personal use or to share.

We have some amazing industry guests come to visit us every year, and that’s thanks to our relationship with them. We have worked hard to secure these experts for our students.
