Digital Event | South Africa | October 22

Virtual Platform

Immersive, Enjoyable, Interactive

At IDC, we are committed to bringing you the latest industry findings and updates during our annual CIO Summits. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have had to curtail our physical events but as they say, "The show must go on!"

As such, we're delighted to bring you the latest virtual experiences so you don't miss out on any part of our traditional events.

This event will employ an immersive virtual platform, enabling you to seamlessly participate sessions hosted by IDC and our partners, use video chat tools to connect with exhibitors, interact with your peers in designated networking zones, attend the IDC CIO Summit Awards, and browse through a sea of valuable content. You can also participate in interactive games for a chance to win exciting raffle prizes.

Interactive Lobby Area

Connect with the IDC Team at the Information Desk for any queries you may have about the event.


The Auditorium will play host to informative presentations, interactive panel discussions, and technology tracks as respected industry experts present their game-changing insights.

Exhibit Area

Interact with our partners' representatives at their booths—via chat or by audio/video call—to discover their latest innovations and offerings.

Networking Lounge

Network with your peers, IDC analysts, and partner executives at your own convenience. A series of industry- and technology-focused tables will be laid out so you can choose which table you wish to join. The platform will also enable you to interact and share your experiences with select industry colleagues.
