Cologne/Germany, 10 June 2021 | ANGA COM DIGITAL, a new virtual event format of ANGA COM – Exhibition and Conference for Broadband, Television & Online, already registered more than 4,200 congress participants during the three-day congress kick-off. The official conference programme included 45 panels with 180 international speakers. In addition, there were almost 100 webinars and keynotes from 80 digital partners in the On Demand Library. In total, the platform provides more than 60 hours of streaming content.
The digital platform will be available until 30 June 2021, with its entire content offering and over 80 digital showrooms. New registrations will continue to be possible free of charge. The platform can seamlessly be used with any mobile device.
Dr Peter Charissé, Managing Director of ANGA COM: “Our digital concept has taken off. The content we put together with our 80 partner companies was overwhelming and the technical congress platform was running smoothly. We received a lot of praise for the quality of the programme as well as for the design and diverse features of the platform. Our early decision to make all content available for on-demand viewing immediately or shortly after the scheduled time proved particularly successful. Time shift and Replay TV are the benchmarks for modern television offerings. We set the same standard for our digital platform. Consequently, the platform is still active with all content until the end of June and remains open for new registrations. Watching a panel on the smartphone and surfing through the showrooms and product presentations makes great fun. A real trade show, the real encounter and community experience cannot be replaced digitally, but the pure use of the content is even more intensive than on-site, especially with our on-demand concept. This has also made the effort particularly worthwhile for the speakers. In addition to the speakers and moderators, our greatest thanks go to our partner companies who have remained loyal to us after a year of total failure under difficult conditions. This is another reason why it's now full steam ahead for us until 10 May 2022 – not in a new normal, but in an improved normal. We are already very much looking forward to seeing all our partners and friends from all over the world gathered in Cologne again.”
