28-29 September 2022

After an unplanned absence of over 3 years, Scarecrow are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a two-day MBSE Spectacular on 28 & 29 September 2022 at The Birmingham and Midland Institute.

On each of the days there will be:

  • presentations from the Scarecrow Team
  • presentations from guest presenters
  • panel sessions
  • prizes, including some very limited edition prizes that will only be available at this event

This is a great opportunity, at an incredibly low price (only £50 per person for the two days), to enjoy two days of thought-provoking (and possibly contentious!) MBSE content with like-minded people. As well as being entertaining and informative, it is also a great opportunity for networking.

Although we aren’t providing accommodation or sorting out your travel arrangements, we are providing food and drink throughout the event.


At our previous events, we frequently had delegates saying ‘I wish my boss had come along to hear this’. So, for our MBSE Spectacular, we encourage you to bring your gaffer for free!

We are making available, free of charge, a limited number of tickets which can be used to encourage the attendance of someone in your management line who you want to inform about MBSE. The number of these Bring Your Gaffer tickets is strictly limited and no more will made available once they are gone. One Bring Your Gaffer ticket may be booked per group of delegates from an Organisation or a Business Unit within a large Organisation, so if there are lots of you coming as a group, decide which Gaffer to bring! NOTE: You have to purchase at least one Standard Entry ticket in order to be eligible for a Bring Your Gaffer ticket.

These tickets are not intended to be used by general delegates as a way of getting cheaper entry! Please don’t abuse them; we reserve the right to cancel any Bring Your Gaffer tickets that we feel have been wrongly allocated.
