About this event
This webinar will discuss the ever-growing shift within the industry and across the board to enhance digitalization. The shift that began before COVID-19 has accelerated considerably during the lockdowns forced by the pandemic. Our speakers will go into detail about the situation pre COVID-19, what took place during the lockdowns leading to the acceleration and finally what the future holds. A 15 minute presentation will be given to lay the groundwork, followed by a live panel discussion where the experts will talk about what is happening on-the-ground.
