About the Summit

Forrester is proud to announce its 11th annual Summit EMEA, taking place on 6-7 October 2020. Summit EMEA harnesses the energy created by bringing together more than 700 of the best and brightest leaders in B2B to spark off each other, illuminate shared challenges, and power up for a brighter and more successful future.

This year’s experience will enable sales, marketing and product leaders to learn how the combined power of Forrester and SiriusDecisions can energise their business and supercharge their opportunities for intelligent growth – all powered by leading-edge technology and insightful analysis.

We decided to hold Summit EMEA 2020 virtually after careful deliberation and mainly because of the following reasons:

  • The safety and well-being of our community is our top priority. In light of travel restrictions, corporate travel bans, and guidance on social distancing due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we believe providing a virtual experience is a better alternative to ensure the safety of the participants.
  • B2B sales, marketing, and product leaders rely on the Summit EMEA to learn new practices and drive alignment and execution in their organisations. The decision to hold Summit EMEA 2020 as a virtual conference was made to honor our commitment to these leaders and provide the best possible alternative under the current circumstances.

The online event will provide the same Summit EMEA experience that our attendees have come to expect. We have made significant investments in a robust, user-friendly platform that will allow attendees to have access to:

  • All keynotes and track sessions
  • An interactive marketplace and show floor experience
  • Analyst 1:1s to meet and discuss priorities
  • Virtual networking opportunities to interact and collaborate with other participants in real-time for a fully immersive experience

Forrester defines a virtual conference as a fully immersive experience. Delivered via a sophisticated and secure cloud-based platform, Summit EMEA 2020 will offer attendees advanced experiential and networking opportunities beyond video conferencing, screen shares, or webinars. It offers all the core components that have become the hallmark of the SiriusDecisions Summit EMEA including access to keynote speakers, ROI and POY Honours, analyst 1:1s, community engagement including Executive Leadership Exchange, B2B Marketing certification and much more.

The main difference between a live and a virtual summit is that the attendees can access the virtual conference from anywhere in the world on any computer or mobile device rather than a physical location.

All attendees registered for Summit EMEA 2020 will automatically be registered to attend the virtual Summit. Details of how to access the event and helpful tips to maximise your experience will be shared in the coming weeks. If you haven’t registered yet, you can here or from the register button.

You will receive your login details for access to the platform to the email you registered with prior to the event. If you have not received this by 5 October, please email events@forrester.com for assistance.

If you can’t attend the live conference, you will still have access to all the sessions and content on demand so you can view them at your own convenience. All Keynotes and Sponsor sessions will be available on-demand for 90 days (through 5 January 2020). The track sessions will be available on-demand for 30 days (through 6 November 2020).
