Event Update:

In light of the coronavirus disruption, we are planning to move the upcoming roundtable, ‘Digital Transformation of Supply Chains in an Age of Disruption', which you are due to attend on 26th March, to a virtual event.

Whilst we regret this inconvenience, your health and that of your family and our staff is of paramount importance to us. Following government guidance, the event will take place instead in the form of a virtual roundtable in a conference call style setting. The entire discussion will take place between 6pm – 7.30pm.

During this call, we will follow the same format as if it were hosted physically at The Conservatorium Hotel. Tineke Bakker Van der Veen, former Managing Director, Boeing Benelux & Nordics will chair the discussion across the topics listed below.

Should you wish to join the call via video link/audio if you prefer, please fill out the form on the Register tab to book your place and we will send you a link to our software.

National Technology News organises and hosts a range of exclusive intimate roundtables and bespoke events throughout the year, which are free to attend for technology professionals.

A roundtable is a form of discussion where participants debate specific business and technology topics. Each person is given equal right to participate in the discussions which centre on current trends and issues affecting the sector.

Roundtable discussions and event write ups are often published digitally and in print. Where applicable the write ups and comments are sent to participants ahead of publication and they are given the chance to approve their comments.

There is also the opportunity for us to work with you on networking drinks evenings, half day conferences, seminars and much more.
