Being held virtually, the summit will be accessible to many audiences due to lower delegate fees, access via a full range of devices and recorded sessions/debates for convenient viewing.
There will also be easy interaction between speakers and audiences – with participants able to ask questions and to vote on topics of interest.
The experience is further enhanced by a virtual Business Matching service, which allows participants to pre-arrange virtual meetings with other attendees through an easy to-use online platform.
Finally, a virtual EAOGS exhibition will allow exhibitors to welcome and engage with delegates, showcase their products and services by posting materials, videos and images and interact and network with virtual visitors.
Charles Kahuthu, Regional Coordinator and CEO of the East African Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (EACCIA), co-organisers of the event commented; “After months of lockdowns, cutbacks and disruptions, business is back and we are delighted to be able to return EAOGS to the industry in its new format.”
He concluded by saying that the “the virtual edition will give unique access to a much wider audience, with the ability for speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates to still be able to interact with each other, showcase products and conduct ‘virtual’ private one-to-one meetings.”
