‘Visitors’ could attend a host of seminars, visit virtual exhibitor booths and network via video link.
FutureScape event director Jamie Wilkinson commented:
“It wasn’t the show we wanted last year. But to know that the second-best we could offer has been shortlisted is fantastic news.
“There’s nothing like face to face interaction at events like this. But it’s great to see that our efforts to make sure our industry didn’t go without a show in 2020 has been recognised.
“2020 was due to be a big year for FutureScape. We had moved venues to London’s ExCel and had added a second day to the event. That’s now all planned for 2021.
“The platform we used for FutureScape VIRTUAL was brilliant. To get over 3,000 visitors to an event which was a first in our market without any hiccups was testament to the FutureScape team.”
