Spirit of the meetings

EPIC Online Technology Meetings are neither ordinary webinars nor conventional online meetings. They are extraordinary in terms of their speakers, attendees, and moderators.

Only a limited group of people will join each meeting. The speakers and attendees represent companies along the entire value chain: component suppliers, system integrators, and end-users.

The spirit of the meetings is to identify ways and reasons for working together. Speakers will give a short presentation about their technologies, solutions and needs related to the topic, and will answer the EPIC questions: “What can they do for you? What can you do for them?” Together with the attendees in the Zoom room, they will exchange expertise and new visions in a round table discussion, which will be continued at the end of the meeting resulting in new business relationships.
