Agenda 2020

Two weeks before the conference, all delegates are asked to submit questions to our speakers in advance – enabling them to provide insight on the specific issues and examples the audience faces. Industrial Data Summit EMEA 2020 mirrors the format of our established and successful face-to-face conference, featuring a combination of Plenary and Discussion Room sessions.

Plenary

Our Plenary sessions bring together all attendees in a single virtual room – concentrating the event’s focus on a series of high-profile content sessions. These content sessions include presentations from our keynote speakers, short & snappy “Five-Minute Ideas”, as well as expertly moderated panel discussions. Each Plenary session will be accompanied by Q&A from the audience, allowing you to ask follow-up questions.

Discussion Rooms

Periodically during the conference, the audience will split into three Discussion Rooms, for a 40-minute interactive Q&A, hosted by a leading manufacturer and a technology expert. Each Discussion Room is dedicated to a specific, and you can choose the ones that are most relevant to you. In each session, you’ll hear insights from both of your co-hosts before an extended, moderated Q&A using questions submitted in advance, and live on the day. Each Plenary session will be accompanied by Q&A from the audience, allowing you to ask follow-up questions.
