DCME VIRTUAL International Conference & Exhibition – Spring 2021
In Association with Birmingham City University
Following the huge success of our inaugural virtual conference & exhibition in October 2020, the DATACENTRE.ME team brought you DCME VIRTUAL International Conference & Exhibition – Spring 2021 – in association with Birmingham City University. This event took place on Wednesday 28th April 2021 and remained on-demand for a further 30 days, allowing all registrants to join us from the comfort & convenience of their home or office, anywhere in the world from their computer, mobile phone or other device.
In the virtual exhibition hall attendees were able discover the very latest industry products & services and had the chance to catch up with their favourite suppliers and meet some new ones too. They could view, save and email documents, videos and other content available on the exhibition booths and, if they needed more information, they could contact the exhibitors or us.
There were a wealth of industry VIPs who presented and shared their thoughts & views within the conference agenda in the virtual auditorium. Additionally all attendees benefitted from the on-demand CPD educational sessions (details can also be found within the conference agenda).
Despite this being a virtual event, the exhibition floor & conference auditorium had a very similar look and feel to the physical events that we are all so familiar with. The virtual environment used was extremely easy-to-navigate. We fully understand that many people feel that nothing really beats face to face networking however there are several advantages with an online event of this nature; the main ones being:
- This gives us the ability to continue to offer a safe way of networking and meeting new contacts during these unprecedented times of social distancing and national lock-downs
- The geographical borders are removed therefore allowing attendance from industry professionals from all around the world, but without the inconvenience and cost of travelling and being away from home
Thank you to our fabulous exhibitors and sponsors who donated fantastic prizes to the lucky winners of the Leaderboard Challenge and the Scavenger Hunt which were just some of the many activities that were part of the live day.
We hope to start up our face to face events again from 21st September 2021 so please bookmark our events page and social media channels to be kept updated. You are also invited to complete the contact us form with any questions, sponsorship enquiries, testimonial submissions or if you would like to be added to our mailing list to find out about future events.
