eacs has announced further details and several keynote speakers for its annual IT conference, Optimise IT 2021, being held on 7th July 2021.
Now in its 23rd year, the event will be available for delegates to attend both in-person and virtually following the projected lifting of lockdown in June. Optimise IT will be taking place at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire, and the venue will be working with eacs to support necessary social distancing measures and safety precautions.
The key focus for the event will be to provide attendees with the information needed to plan their post lockdown IT strategies. Over the course of the day, eacs experts, together with those from our partners, will show you how technology can help you get back on track. We will look at how you can use technology to overcome future challenges and transition back to normality. We will take a look specifically at:
Alongside our own team, we have lined up an exciting set of partners all of whom will be available to chat with you about those key issues that need to be addressed. We will be announcing the full line-up and more details regarding the schedule as well as details of the presentations, but we are delighted to announce that the following will be presenting at the event:
Following the success of last year’s completely virtual Optimise event, this year all sessions will be live-streamed which will allow delegates to attend from the comfort of their home or office if they’d prefer, described by eacs CEO and chairman Kevin Timms as the ‘best of both worlds.
"We firmly believe that there is an appetite for some people to get back to an element of normality and have that face-to-face interaction that we all took for granted before the virus hit, but given the success of the virtual event [in 2020], we felt that this year was an ideal opportunity to adopt a hybrid model for 2021,” Timms said.
“In practical terms, this will mean more of a focus on speakers but we are working with our partner community to ensure that the content being delivered will address the challenges and questions that many businesses will have and start to face as we begin to move out of lockdown.”
All of the content from last year’s virtual event can be found here, with Microsoft, NetApp and Sophos our headline speakers. Every session of Optimise 2021 will be recorded and available to watch on-demand straight after the event to ensure that attendees can catch up when they can. Updates on vendors will be announced over the coming weeks on our social media channels and our website, and you can register now for the event here.
