On Thursday 18th March, The Digital Event Awards were hosted virtually to award the best in class for webinars, product launches, podcasts and exhibitions.
ConneXion, the packaging industry community launched by Brunton Business Publications Ltd in the summer of 2020, was shortlisted for the ‘Best Digital Exhibition’ category, along side a dozen leading on-line events that had been hosted in 2020. We were lined up against virtual events organised in many different sectors of industry, from all around the world. The outcome? ConneXion was announced as Winner of ‘Best Digital Exhibition 2020’!
We are delighted to have been recognised for our ground-breaking approach to bringing converters and suppliers closer together, especially at a time where people still can not travel. It also adds momentum to the next event, which will be held 1st to 8th June inclusive. This second event will be open to corrugated and folding carton converters all over the world, enabling visitors to engage with suppliers in an easy to use, browser based experience.
“But the most important thanks go to the partner exhibitors for their support of this novel event and of course the many thousands of box makers from around the world who took the time to attend,” said Daniel Brunton, Managing Director, Brunton Business Publications Ltd. ‘The event could not have been made possible without the support of the industry and we are also grateful to The Virtual Event Company, who helped us deliver a reality from the initial pipe-dream I had back in early 2020 as the world went into lock down.”
