FB-Header 2019


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.

In 2019, on the 20th April we were at the Renaissance Hotel in Manchester (in the UK)…. More information can be found at the event page.

Our Full Financial Breakdown is available now here.

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 160 of us got together in Reading, the year before 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.
