ECM 2020



A warm welcome to the home page of the Elite Community Meet team. Here you can find out all about Elite Community Meet (E.C.M.), who we are and our goals.

This year our intended venue is in the home of Frontier Developments, yes that’s right Cambridge.  A slightly different venue than before we really hope to bring a lot of fun to your Easter weekend.  Tickets will be available from Thursday 23rd January 2020 (20:30ish GMT)

Our Venue is Cambridge Chesterton Indoor Bowls Club
Logans Way, Chesterton, Cambridge, CB4 1BL
thSJ3A6WNX   Conference Setup Cambridge Chesterton Bowls Club

We are a group of people who have met through the community around the video game Elite:Dangerous and through those contacts have developed new friendships. Therefore we have created E.C.M. in order to develop events where people from solo players to groups of in game friends can meet in a relaxing environment, learn more about the game and have fun in the real world. Oh – and play games. Last year nearly 182 of us met in Manchester, the year before 160 of us got together in Reading, the year before that 128 in Bristol and before that 90 in Glasgow… before that (you get the idea).

Our Chosen Charities

As a non-profit group we donate any left over funds after events to our two chosen charities.


Special Effect is an organisation that seeks to help those who have challenges accessing gaming due to physical disabilities. They work with people to identify and use existing technologies and design new solutions that can help those individuals get the same pleasure as most of us do from the gaming world.


Hearing Dogs obtains, trains and homes Hearing Assistance dogs with those that would most benefit from a companion that can alert them to various aural queues that most of us take for granted. They Assist with audible alerts such as fire alarms, smoke alarms, mobile phone alerts etc. Not only do they assist with these alerts but they also provide real companionship as well.

As heartbreaking as it is, we must always remember that Lord Alvin and his co-workers are exactly that... ...

124 tickets gone already and we only went live on Thursday! The list of "things to do" is filling up nicely - looks like a busy retro area again, plus the VR with a full motion VR rig and the usual standing Oculus Rift and Vive. Spidermind games will be there showing EDRPG and Battlecards (plus their newer products) and HCS Voice packs will as usual be sending a team.

Frontier have confirmed that a few of them will be there - not just the CM team but maybe even one of the developers or two, to come and join in the gaming.

So - have you booked your place yet? Don't forget the day is put on by YOU - the community, so if you've got something to bring along whether it be your XBox, or a board game, or some retro computing, it's all part of the day!

It would seem that room rates at the premier inn have gone up in price quite dramatically, if its an issue, the Travelodge is located directly accross the road from the premierinn and is currently a lot cheaper to book.

If you find any other deals or the prices go mental, please let us know here.. we can't do much about it... but it helps people who havent booked yet make their choices.

Can't wait to see you all!
