An Interactive Virtual Event Using an App Named #1 at the Oscars of the Event Technology

I know that an in-person event would be so much better (just have a look at the epic video above from our 2019 Summit in Dublin!), but COVID-19 means that there are still uncertainties around travel and mass gatherings.
But I am promising a virtual online experience with a difference. Our event will be brought to you using Whova!
