SiGMA celebrates the success of its inaugural virtual event with a look at some of the stand out moments from the two-day event

The SiGMA Europe Virtual Summit was a fitting end to a turbulent 2020, with a high turnout proving that, despite the health crisis, events  can still find success and connections can still flourish. This event has highlighted the value of adapting and embracing new ideas, which is why moving forward all our physical conferences will incorporate digital elements – something which will be key as we carefully transition to a changed industry.

We take a look below at some of the best moments to highlight the event, from the best designed stands to the most visited – we’re armed with (virtual) awards for the best performers.
