EVNTech is launching Engage-Virtual - a brand new event to help organisers acquire insights into the issues affecting virtual and live events.

Engage-Virtual is bringing together events industry leaders to discuss poignant topics in our current climate. We strongly feel that shared learning and insight through experience is critical in navigating through these times and progressing toward the future of the events industry.

Registration is now open for the free online event, which is happening on Thursday, 29 October 2020 (from 4.30 pm to 7.15 pm BST).

“We’ll be featuring industry leaders speaking on each topic all in one event,” says Jack Geddes, Founder of EVNTech. ‘With sessions and line-ups never seen before; I think it’s an exciting programme and I’m looking forward to welcoming all participants.”
