The AtlanTec Festival of Technology 2021 will once again be a virtual global event. We hope to hold a number of events face to face Covid permitting.

AI & Digital Innovation is the theme of this year’s AtlanTec Technology Festival. Topics will combine futuristic thinking, real-life case examples and deep-dives into innovative technologies and trends.

The 2021 Festival will host 30+ virtual events and includes sessions focusing on AI, MedTech, FinTech, Leadership, Digital, and Mindfulness. An international line-up of expert leaders will present sessions and enable participants to take part in and engage through Q&A’s at the end of each session.

“In light of the pandemic restrictions and reflecting a changed world, the AtlanTec Festival has adapted and this year we are going virtual.   We have worked with all our expert speakers and contributors and are transitioning all our sessions online. We invite all our members and welcome all our technology partners to attend and participate online.” Caroline Cawley, Ceo itag.
