Enabling the discussion between the industry and its influencers

Technology Live! is a one-day event where up to four vendors showcase their technologies in action to a group of technical journalists, bloggers and analysts. A combination of presentations and demos allows each company to present its solutions with a much higher level of detail than is usually possible in traditional briefings. A highly interactive day for all participants.

Attendee reviews:

Dave Tyler, Storage Magazine
"Replacing a full day's face-to-face presentations and discussions with several virtual sessions over two days must have been a daunting task for A3 (Communications) to organise, but they did a good job of shepherding all the right people in and out of different Zoom rooms at the right moments... Nobody else is doing what A3 (Communications) do with these days, and I'm surprised at that, as the format clearly works for us (press/analysts)."

Ulrike Riess, TechTarget
"Technology Live! gives the opportunity to have access to different vendors and thus different angles of IT stories. Technical information is most valuable closely followed by being able to connect with vendors as well as fellow journalists."

Chris Mellor, The Register
"Why was it such a good event? Good mix of companies; right number for length of day, mix of tech and sales/marketing, willing to answer toughest questions in straightforward way - much appreciated, good mix of journalist/analysts facilitated good range of questions and attendee-presenter conversations making for meaningful dialogue."

Tony Lock, Freeform Dynamics
"A great chance to interact with the participants. A very well organised and run event."

Martin Glassborow,
"Good selection of vendors; pacing of presentations was good. [I wanted Technology Live! to give me] product information and context from various vendors along with a healthy dollop of cynicism from the journos/bloggers and analysts...and it delivered"

Enrico Signoretti,
"I like the idea to spend a day with a selected number of vendors and few other bloggers/journalists to talk about technology and different PoVs. And this is exactly what happens."
