Digital Textile Printing has transitioned to an online event for 2020!
We believe this is the best option to provide our attendees, speakers, and sponsors with the certainty
they need to plan their participation and maximize the value from the event in a safe and reliable way.
Rather than trying to replicate an online version of the live event, we will be making some changes
to the event schedule that enhance the attendee experience, and will leverage online tools that
maximize the value you can receive from the event to make the most of your participation.
With an online conference, you get the same thought-provoking sessions, unbeatable connection opportunities, and expert speakers as an on-site event. Plus, the event dashboard and app retains all of the event details, and puts connecting with other attendees at your fingertips.
The all-in-one Hubilo event platform engages the whole audience with interactive content. The platform features rooms for breakout sessions, a lounge for one-on-one meets, virtual booths, and unmatchable networking opportunities.
The event app is available to attendees to encourage connection and discussion before, during, and after the training, and is downloadable for all Android and iOS devices.
Why aren’t you doing a live event?
Based on the current situation with COVID-19, we cannot guarantee that we can run the event safely and successfully in a live environment. The safety of our attendees is paramount to our planning. After consultation with many of our regular participants, we also think that uncertainty around corporate travel policies will have a detrimental effect on attendance. While a live event could be possible in the fall, we want to provide the comfort of certainty to our audience so that they can plan with confidence.
Why not just postpone to next year?
The purpose of the event is to provide a high level forum for industry leadership to share perspectives and make connections. We believe these original goals are still relevant and are more important now than ever as the industry navigates the current challenges, and so we want to provide a way to support the industry and enable attendees to accomplish their learning and networking goals in a safe way.
How will the online event be different than the in-person events?
We don’t think the usual event format will work in a virtual environment, and we aren’t going to try and replicate it. Instead we are going to leverage the benefits of digital by providing an interactive agenda of live sessions, pre-recorded content, and facilitated networking to enable attendees to choose the sessions that most suits their interests and availability. We are also utilizing an online event program that will make it easy to take advantage of unique, beneficial networking opportunities.
How can I network successfully at a virtual event?
We are working to design a range of facilitated and coordinated networking sessions, which will enable attendees to meet with their peers, discuss key topics, exchange opportunities, and find ways to collaborate. We will also have an event app to help attendees make connections. We have a range of sponsorship options to enable this, which we would be happy to discuss.
I don’t want to participate anymore. Can I cancel?
We understand that virtual events are different and it’s going to take time for everyone to get comfortable with them. We would like to explore ideas with you and demonstrate some of the capabilities we are developing before you make that decision. If, after we have shown you the options, you still want to cancel, you can either transfer your booking to next year’s event or apply for a refund
