Due to the COVID-19 climate last year, Techweek2020 decided to move to a full digital festival. And while there is no denying that we missed the face-to-face contact, the digital platform was a huge success. Following on from the learnings of 2020 (and moving with the times), this year Techweek will be a mix of face-to-face, digital and hybrid events. If you are planning on hosting a face-to-face event, as a contingency, perhaps it is worth considering making this hybrid. Click here to find out more about what a hybrid event is and how you can successfully host one.

Rest assured, the Techweek show will go on! Rain, hail or COVID-19 Alert Level. (We will go 100 percent digital if we need to).
