The service includes an email-based morning financial brief, a blog, and two message boards, one called "Markets Live" and another, added two years after its founding, called "The Long Room ". Commenting on the blog or participating on either of the message boards require registration; the Long Room is limited to current and retired financial professionals.
On July 2, 2014, the FT Alphaville team organised Camp Alphaville, a one-day finance festival in the heart of the city, in which over 500 people took part. The camp featured a main stage that hosted rolling discussions and interviews ranging from the future of money to "nuts markets". More focused discussions were held on the sidelines in inflatable igloos. Speakers and attendees were also able to beam into the event via autonomous telepresence robots.
