We believe exhibitions and events are truly irreplaceable. They allow like-minded people to create relationships, share ideas, and interact with brands in new and exciting ways.
However, due to the current climate, exhibitions and events have been put on hold. Therefore companies are racing to find innovative ideas to unlock the potential of digital live events. Until exhibitions and events return, our challenge is this:
TO REIMAGINE THE MAGIC OF EXHIBITIONS
Prodigio are partnering with the Department for International Trade and the GREAT Britain campaign to launch EXHIBITION FUTURES; a truly unique opportunity enabling you to present, collaborate and develop your ideas with some of the leading minds and global brands.
‘GREAT showcases creativity and innovation across 144 countries and over 1400 events a year to inspire the world and encourage people to visit, do business, invest, and study in the UK. Today we all know our events have to be delivered digitally. So GREAT and the Department For International Trade are focused on finding, using and sharing the very best technologies, tools and practices to create digital events that help UK businesses reach the world with impact and effectiveness. That’s why they’re proud to be partners with Prodigio in their Exhibition Futures Challenge 2020 and excited to see your ideas.’
The entire business world needs new and exciting great ideas to reimagine the magic of our exhibitions; it could be anything from immersive digital or live events tackling the challenges of social distancing – There’s never been a better time to get your creative idea launched.
