Virtual online conference
Edit Details Area
The past year has united the planet in a common goal, irrespective of whether we work in a developed or a developing economy: the need to defeat and manage the Covid-19 pandemic. However, whilst this goal has brought us closer, the consequences will inevitably highlight the ongoing differences between countries and regions. The need therefore to understand which are the relative gainers and those which still have even more to do, especially in a developing market context, becomes ever more apparent and important.
Bringing together experts in their fields across the EMEA developing markets, this virtual conference enabled participants to understand not just the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, but also the underlying challenges and opportunities in these markets.
Participants had a chance to listen to virtual panel discussions, take part in interactive debates and to network online with LMA members around the world. The event is now available on-demand until Friday, 21st May 2021.
If you have already registered for this event, you can now login to the conference platform with your email address and access the content on demand.
Registration is direct with our conference technology provider, WorkCast, and is very similar to registering for a webinar. Click the register button below to access the registration page.
Click the "Join event" button in the confirmation email you will receive from email@example.com upon registration. You will be required to enter your email address before entering the conference platform so make sure you register using your work email address which will be the same email address you use to gain access.
