2021 BIG 5G is a Hybrid Event: Virtual & Physical packages built around your business objectives


For 2021, BIG 5G will run as a Hybrid Event, delivering content both in person and online on the virtual platform - Swapcard, giving your company more opportunity for exposure and ensuring that there is a seamless platform for everyone to get involved in – regardless of travel restrictions.  

Leading industry content

Taking place over a full week from August 30th – September 3rd, there will be both online & in-person speaking opportunities. The Keynotes will be delivered onsite and live-streamed to the virtual audience. The track sessions can be delivered in the format that suits you, either onsite or pre-recorded for the virtual platform which can be accessed on demand by all attendees.

Brand exposure in the exhibition

With an onsite exhibition booth, your company will also benefit from an online listing in the virtual platform for double the exposure. You can rest assured that all local guidelines will be adhered to, to keep both you and attendees safe, alternatively there are virtual only exhibition opportunities available. 

Networking with 3,000+ attendees
