Secure your virtual delegate passes & exhibition booths today! One ticket, two great days!

There does not seem a more appropriate event to kick start our virtual offering than the Digitalisation & Cyber Security Conference.

Originally billed for March 2020, and postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are thrilled to announce that this event will now run virtually across 2 half days in September.

The packed agenda remains unchanged; however, you can now join us from the comfort and safety of your home office or workplace.

We have created an event that takes all of the successful elements of a face-to-face conference into the virtual world. As well as joining the conference sessions, you can network in the lobby, visit our virtual exhibition booths, take part in table discussions in the lounge, arrange meetings with delegates and catch up with presenters and mentors in the VIP area.

Full details of our virtual delegate, exhibitor booth and sponsorship packages are outlined below.   


Event Overview

Key themes include:
