Fantastic Venue

enter image description here After the phenomenal success of last year, it was clear we needed a bigger venue for this year's conference. So we have secured the BDC in Islington, where we will be able to accommodate London's sizeable and growing #bddX community. With great spaces for talks and discussions, unrivalled technology capabilities and fantastic transport links in one of London's most buzzing areas, we could not think of a better venue to host this year's Agile Testing & BDD eXchange.

Business Design Centre

Situated in Islington, one of London’s most vibrant areas, the BDC is within walking distance of Angel tube station and relatively close to Kings Cross, Farringdon, Liverpool Street and Euston stations. Conveniently located outside the congestion charge zone, the venue also benefits from on-site car parking, an adjacent Hilton Hotel, and has disabled access.
