A hybrid experience
For the first time, the entire event took place as a hybrid experience, combining the opportunities of attending in-person with all the advantages of a virtual event.
This year, after all the initial global lockdowns, a strong emphasis was placed on interaction between people: the hybrid format meant that people could physically meet while the platform also managed Events and Matchmaking supported by Artificial Intelligence.
There were 1,344 individual participants over the three days, including those that participated in person, and those that attended online, with an average of about 400 attendees per day.
The organizers are satisfied with this result: despite the difficulties that persist with regard to physical mobility as a result of the COVID pandemic, people from all over Europe, the United States and Asia attended.
