Where, When, Who and How…


The IndieUnconference Europe will take place  June 9 – 12th in one of the most beautiful small cities on earth; Matera Italy.   In southern Italy’s Basilicata region,  Matera was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was designated the European Cultural Capital for 2019

And believe it or not, even if you’ve never been to Matera – you’ve most likely seen it.  Matera has movie star appeal; movies filmed in Matera include “The Passion of the Christ” (2004),  “The Omen” (2006), “Ben-Hur” (2016), “Wonder Woman” (2017), “Mary Magdalene” (2018), and most recently the latest bond flic – “No Time to Die.”


Guest Moderators will include Dan Wood from Draft2Digital, Ricardo Fayet from Reedsy and other notable professionals from the publishing industry.    More names coming soon!

The Venue

This year’s unconference will take place at a gorgeous new workshop and conference space called  “The Palestra”.  The Palestra is located on the outer circle of the Sassi – so those with mobility issues will have no need to worry about getting to or from the conference center.   Coffee & Pastries are available all day, lunch and dinner can be found in the many wonderful restaurants, bars, and trattoria nearby.

Within the next days and weeks, we will be posting more information about how to get to Matera, where to sleep in Matera, what to DO in Matera. Stay Tuned…

The Whens and Hows

Each morning we will meet at the Palestra to discuss what is on our minds that day – to exchange ideas and to determine our desired focus for the afternoon.  Each afternoon, we will have two-three breakout sessions, where authors can form small groups to discuss whatever came up in the morning sessions.   An example could be one break-out group focused on Facebook Ads, another on AMS, another on Productivity or Listbuilding – the agenda is really up to you!  In addition, experts will be available to answer your questions in either a breakout or private one-on-one session.
