IT Arena has always focused not only on content but on quality networking and bonding, which is undoubtedly more efficient at an in-person event. However, due to uncertainty with the current pandemic situation and no hope for a tested and available vaccine by October, IT Arena goes online this year.
The organizers are no longer able to organize a 4000+ indoor event ensuring safety conditions for everyone and don’t want to risk the health of the conference’s attendees, speakers, and staff. Since a considerable part of the audience is international, it would not be able to visit Lviv due to the travel restrictions for them.
New dates of a digital event are set for October 8-10. IT Arena team is currently adapting the event into an online format that will include a combination of insightful content, matchmaking and networking opportunities, and interactive sessions.
The organizers say, they will do their best to deliver to every participant valuable content and inspiration in a new online format, which will be possible to enjoy from the comfort of everyone’s home. Currently, IT Arena team is building a brand-new web platform, which will be paired with a convenient IT Arena mobile app to ensure a flawless online experience. The participants will be able to ask questions during talks, participate in giveaways, check out startups, create group chats, and talk directly to other participants. The conference will be providing more details about the features of the online platform as well as guidelines on registration very soon.
Taking into account the experiences of other online events, the organizers want the event’s agenda to include enough breaks so that participants don’t have to worry about rescheduling their plans, canceling work meetings, or missing lunch. Participants will also be able to work simultaneously while listening to the talks on the smartphone or laptop.
The only offline event we will be hosting this year will be Tech Longe, a small networking event for Executive ticket holders. The event will be held in accordance with the health and safety guidelines in Lviv on October 9.
