Norbain will be launching its first Virtual Event on Tuesday 5 June. The online event has been developed such that ‘visitors’ can benefit from all the advantages of a physical exhibition, but at a time and place convenient to them.
As is the case with a physical event, visitors will be able to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in the industry, speak with suppliers, network, watch videos and presentations and use their ‘event bag’ to take away useful resources.
In addition to being able to visit supplier’s stands, the Virtual Event will give visitors the opportunity to watch a range of presentations from industry experts focusing on the subjects of cyber security and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation.
Mark Field, commercial director for Norbain SD, commented: “We’re continually looking for new and innovative ways in which to deliver value to the industry and facilitate the sharing of information between all parties. Although physical exhibitions and roadshows are still relevant, it’s becoming increasingly challenging to justify the time and expense involved for visitors and suppliers alike. Face-to-face networking will always be a part of our strategy, but the Virtual Event allows us to offer a very accessible alternative.”
The launch event is “just the beginning”. Norbain will be using the site across the year to run a range of events on a number of different themes, all of them focused on topics that are key to the industry. Even when the platform is not being used to run live events, it will still be available to visitors, subsequently allowing them to take advantage of a great range of resources (among them the dedicated Cyber Security Zone).
