The Exhibition Hall
IMMERSION+ is more than keynote speakers. The Exhibition Hall showcases how technology can address industry-specific challenges. Hear from event partners, AWS, NICE inContact, BMC, Mist, F5 & Livepro discuss how technology addresses organizational challenges.
Entertainment Venues and Stadia will forever more have to rely on compliant, contactless, frictionless technology. Governments and venue patrons will demand speed of movement and their health and safety.
Travelers demand safety, speed and reliability and now more than ever before, health measures from modern day Transport systems. NEC is working towards a future of mass-mobility-as-a-service, allowing technology and humanity to work together.
COVID-19 has turned the traditional education space as we know it on its head. From examination integrity to institutions scrambling for ways to secure their financial futures through remote learning and enrolments, now is the time to take a “good hard look” at their systems.
Government & Defence
Governments now, more than ever before, have the opportunity to take a long, hard look at their policies and systems and transform them for better outcomes for their citizens. Governments know they need technology providers that understand their business and can provide customer-centric solutions that takes their staff along the journey with them.
Justice & Corrections
Safety and security inside and outside the Corrections environment is a remit NEC takes very seriously. Finding ways to better engage the inmate community so that the next time they leave prison is hopefully their last time, requires new ways of thinking and wider technology ecosystems.
There can be little more important in society than emergency services being equipped to respond to every call, every time, immediately and reliably. No one provides these secure systems for police and emergency services better than NEC.
Your brand matters and especially now, investment in your brand is crucial to set you apart. Digital display allows you to be immersive and dynamic and retail is fast-tracking towards contactless, cashless transactions.
There is a new understanding in Health of a need to become more personalised and help find ways to share data with customers for the sake of wider-society. COVID has shown the Health sector needs to scale-up or down at a moment’s notice, putting trust in technology partners who understand their needs for agile delivery of solutions.
