Online Conference Format Attracts 130 Participants

The first ever virtual interactive EMVA Business Conference received an overwhelmingly positive response to the online format, adopted this year as a consequence of recent Covid-19 travel restrictions.

In a unique approach to combine webinar and personal online meeting functions, close to sixty face-to-face video meetings were booked during the conference breaks by the participants to bilaterally discuss business opportunities. A traditional feature of previous business conferences, this opportunity to directly interact with other conference participants was highly appreciated, as expressed by the statement of Christian Offermann, Kowa Optimed Deutschland: “Attending the seminars was made very easy. Personal interaction at 1:1 meetings was a great idea and enabled good discussions.” Arwyn Roberts of Surface Inspection added: “Very well done! A major undertaking under difficult circumstances but a great success! I always get great value from EMVA events and this was no exception.“

The conference organizers were thrilled about the way this unique online conference concept, necessitated by the global pandemic, was adopted by the industry. “We not only happily donate the income, from ticket sales for this event to the WHO Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund. In addition, we will also soon enable access to the presentations given in the Vision Knowledge Section on our website”, says EMVA general manager Thomas Lübkemeier. He added with regard to classic conference setup: “While we are delighted with the highly positive feedback to this online event, we are also really looking forward to our next physical Business Conference which is scheduled to take place 10 – 12 June 2021 in Sofia, Bulgaria.” (Source: EMVA)
