IBTM Events has pulled the curtains back on a new online event, IBTM Wired, which will take place from June 28 to July 1, 2021.
The event is a permanent addition to IBTMâ€™s global portfolio of B2B events. It will bring professionals from across the world for four days of one-to-one business meetings, networking sessions, and a programme of live and on-demand education sessions curated by sector, skillset, and geographic location.
The event platform, built by Sector Global, will be open 24 hours a day for the eventâ€™s duration so that the global community can tailor their schedule to their timezone.
Each day will provide key insights into a region, from industry outlooks to expert opinions that will help professionals discover new opportunities, expand their areas of focus, and get the latest information on each regionâ€™s recovery.
The schedule is as follows:

â€śWhile thereâ€™s a huge demand for face-to-face events and we look forward to their return, itâ€™s clear that there is a long-term place for high-quality online meetingsâ€ť, said IBTM’s event manager Michael Jones.
