Fully Virtual Conference


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have decided to make our 2021 event online only. The virtual-only experience will still provide you with full access to the conference sessions, exhibitors, and provides plenty of opportunities to interact with fellow delegates through an easy to use platform.


We are, of course, disappointed that we can’t host our usual event in London but hope to attract an even broader range of delegates through simple access via their device wherever they are in the world. Delegates will also be able to access the recordings for a limited time after the event.
