If like many of us, you’re missing human connection and interaction this year, we have a special invitation that might be just what’s needed to reignite your social side.

As part of ConnectIT LIVE 2.0 (03-05 Nov 2020) we are hosting two unique virtual social events in collaboration with our partners, Forcepoint and Fortinet. Places for both the events are limited and as we will be sending out some complimentary food and drink to your door (details below), it is essential you book by Friday 23 October via the ConnectIT LIVE website.

ConnectIT LIVE is our new online event series designed to unite the industry in embracing the challenges and opportunities of digital transformation. Following the success of our first ConnectIT LIVE series in June, we have worked with our partners to create ConnectIT LIVE 2.0 which has a special focus on how we leverage IT modernisation during and following a pandemic. All sessions will run online from 03-05 November 2020.

Online cheese and wine experience with Fortinet

When: 4pm Thursday 05 November

What to expect: There may not be fireworks this Guy Fawkes Night, but we intend to end ConnectIT LIVE with a bang.  Following a brief overview of all things SASE and network security with Fortinet, Sommelier Marcelo will take you on a palate-pleasing experience. He will guide you on a virtual tour through vineyards and farmlands as you sip your way through exceptional wine, paired with a carefully chosen cheese. The session will last around an hour and will be fully interactive to give you the chance to “wine down” with your peers. Complimentary samples will be sent to pre-registered attendees.
