Due to the extraordinary nature of 2020, Platform Economy Summit Europe will run as a digital event this 3 - 6 November, allowing you to experience the same innovative ideas, world-class speakers and unparalleled networking opportunities from the comfort of your desk. 

Wherever you are in the world, Platform Economy Summit Europe is coming to you.


The situation

In these uncertain times it can be difficult to plan for the future. 

The impact of Covid-19 on the industry worldwide has been unprecedented, with challenges and unexplored opportunities coming to the fore.

The insights and powerful connections provided by industry events are more important now than they've ever been and there's a real need to come together as a community, collaborate and share experiences without the need to travel or gather in a single location.

The solution

We're thrilled to be able to offer Platform Economy Summit Europe as an online event for 2020.

The same world-class speakers, unmissable insight and powerful connections delivered direct to your PC, laptop or device - wherever you are in the world.

Breaking down the barriers of needing to physically travel anywhere in these recent times of uncertainty. 

Platform Economy Summit Europe

This isn’t like other digital events you’ve seen before. 

Wherever you are, you'll be able to access the same quality discussions, presentations and case studies, and benefit from the invaluable networking you've come to expect from a face to face event.


Live streamed content

We have set up a seamless experience for viewing live content, enabling you to follow along with the speakers, panels, and Q&As in real-time as if you were in the room with them. 

Simply log onto the digital platform, browse the agenda and tune into the sessions that interest you the most.

Plus, you can watch on-demand so you can catch up on anything you might have missed in real-time.*

*(excluding sessions limited to closed-door attendance, using the Chatham House Rule or where a speaker has requested privacy.)

Audience interaction

Our live streaming software allows you to interact with the speakers, ask questions and see comments from other delegates. 

Plus, you’ll be able to see who’s watching along with you and drop them a message to continue the conversation after the session.

Building connections

We know how important it is to build new connections with your community. 

Our virtual platform has been purpose-built to ensure you can easily meet the people that matter and have those all-important conversations.   

Simply create your personalised profile, indicate the sectors that interest you and the kind of people you’d like to meet, and our smart matchmaking algorithm will suggest connections most relevant to you. 

You can schedule a time to 'meet' during or after the event to connect digitally or by phone.

A live-event atmosphere

Platform Economy Summit Europe 2020 will be delivered as a true event - in just the same way as it would have been in Frankfurt as we'd planned. 

Expect to see just as many opportunities to wind down and connect with friends informally with morning fitness sessions, lunch-and-learns, sport demos, cocktail hours and more!

Platform Economy Summit Europe 2020  was about having fun, innovating and building a community. 2020 will be too. 


Log-on. Watch and network live. Access on demand.

Before the event

All registered delegates will be provided with a link to the networking platform before the event kicks-off.

So you can see who else is attending, and arrange meetings for the week in advance.

You'll also see an up-to-date agenda with a list of confirmed speakers so you can bookmark which of the sessions you can't afford to miss live.

During the event

Platform Economy Summit Europe 2020 is a virtual event with content taking place from 8:00am - 6:00pm on 3 - 6 November 2020. 

The networking platform open on Monday 2 November, and will be live throughout the event. Use the platform to identify who you want to meet, send them a request and then meet face-to-face via video chat at a time that works best for both of you.

After the event

Once the event has taken place, attendees will receive access to all the conference sessions*, allowing you to catch up on topics or speakers you might have missed.

The networking function will also stay live after the event so you can follow up with the people you connected with, or reach out to those you didn't manage to find the time to during the event.
