In 2021: An online cybersecurity event like no other
COVID-19 has turned the events industry on its head. Many conferences have moved to video platforms such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams and although these do offer the ability to learn and collaborate, they’re a poor replacement for in-person cybersecurity events.
In early 2020, as coronavirus took hold, Cyber News Group wanted to offer something different. That’s why we bought the UK and Ireland rights to an events platform like no other, Engagez, which offers the feeling of a real-world conference via a unique-in-the-market 3D immersive experience.
Socialise and learn in an immersive and engaging environment
With impressive virtual venues built in 3D, our online cybersecurity conferences host up to 400 delegates. Immersive and engaging, it’s possible to perform video calls inside the platform for one-to-one chats with other delegates without the need to export to Zoom or Teams.
During the event, we provide the opportunity to eat and socialise with other delegates through a partnership with Just Eat. We even offer an afterparty with Live entertainment following the conference.
A bespoke events platform for 2021 and beyond
Everything we do on the platform, from delegates signing up through to sponsorship, is supported; we even offer services such as video production. The impact this bespoke platform is already having on the online conference space is reflected in the superb delegate feedback we have received from our 2020 events.
We’re excited for 2021 with plans to run our Super Six of events over the course of the year. Cyber News Group’s six live events on the Engagez platform in 2020 attracted an extremely high calibre of speakers including former GCHQ director Robert Hannigan, ex-NCSC boss Ciaran Martin, former business development director for Cambridge Analytica Brittany Kaiser, whistle-blower Edward Snowden and infamous hacking group Anonymous. We expect this line up to ramp up even further over the course of 2021.
