WHAT HAPPENED AT VSEND 8TH NOVEMBER 2019?
Here are some previews from the day’s sessions
VSEND 8th November 2019 went off with a bang. We had some fantastic speakers come in and talk about a whole range of different topics. Our 3 afternoon stream setup meant we could deliver talks not just on those key broad topics, it also allowed us to cover some more niche areas normally reserved for specialist conferences.
