INCON DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE AWARD
The Digital Infrastructure Award has been developed by INCON to celebrate and inspire change in the digital infrastructure and services made available in meeting venues around the world.
The Award rests on a simple principle that meetings are better when a first class digital infrastructure is made available along with applications and tools that enhance the delegate productivity and experience.
The Award recognizes meeting venues that work innovatively to enable top class connected meetings. But more than that, we want these examples to inspire others. That is why we are working with the best partners in the industry to judge this award.
