With the Cambridge event postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak (details at: we’ve moved to a NEW venue – yes, we’ve gone digital and we’re still putting the event on – via the Internet.

vECM is bringing you all the activities we would normally have for you in person, just online.  The good news is that as we no longer have a limit on numbers, we’re open to the entire Elite Community (and friends) and what’s more, the event is now FREE to attend.

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.

Good morning @everyone from the vECM team! As is traditional, we all stayed up too late last night talking and prepping things and maybe having a drink or three.

First order of the day is some freshly ground coffee and some breakfast. Then we head to the virtual venue to complete the setup. Tell you what, being virtual, and not in a hotel, this coffee is much nicer!

Over 1000 raffle tickets gone already which is great.

AND the discord alone now has more people in it than the capacity of the REAL event. (thanks, @Palantir for spotting that)

I have spent hours on the phone today to speak to Premier Inn regarding non-flex bookings. I had non-flex bookings this week that I can no longer attend. So I can pass on the information from Premier Inn.

Non-flex bookings will be refundable should you rebook an equivalent booking with the chain before october. Even if that booking is for a future date.

This means you do not need to panic about your non-flex bookings, even if they have passed and been charged. When you make your replacement non-flex booking (paying again), you email the references and details to the specific email address and they will process a refund on your original booking. Now hopefully this means you won't need to spend hours on the phone like me and can instead wait for the pressure on call centres to pass with knowledge you should be covered.

This is covering nonflex bookings from 16th March 2020 for 14 weeks or until they update the valid query.

I hope this saves you worrying, you will be out of pocket, but should you rebook the hotels for when we can actually reschedule ECM for, then you can re-claim the first booking. In Theory.
