ECOC Exhibition Virtual Catch Up
1-3 November 2021

ECOC Exhibition Virtual Catch Up

Following on from our return to the exhibition halls in Bordeaux, France in September the virtual catch-up is the perfect place to connect with exhibitors, customers and colleagues not able to attend the physical event and to attend sessions from Market Focus and Product Focus.

The virtual event will run in the same format as ECOC Live 2020, delivering 3 days of industry developments and insights, discussion from leading companies and networking.

Our unique virtual exhibition hall enables you to browse virtual booths, download information, watch product videos and request meetings at time that suits your schedule and timezone.

ECOC Exhibition Virtual Catch Up will run from 1-3 November 2021.



Thank you for joining us in Bordeaux!

We were pleased to welcome so many visitors, exhibitors and sponsors back into the exhibition halls earlier this week. We will be sharing some of the photos, videos and highlights from the three days of the event over the next few weeks and we look forward to you joining us in November for our Virtual Catch Up.

The 2021 exhibition opened its doors on Monday, 13th September, to welcome visitors and exhibitors back to the exhibition halls, which once again showcased the latest products and services, as well as providing an opportunity to catch up and network with key suppliers and industry leaders in person.

Read the Show Daily to find out what you’ve missed from the three days of the exhibition, including the winners of our Industry Awards.

The event has now closed and we are looking forward to our first Virtual Catch Up event, taking place online from 1-3 November where you can catch up with any of the Market Focus presentations and Product Focus sessions you may have missed and continue networking with contacts, customers and colleagues.
