Will there be a live face-to-face event this year?

No, due to the COVID-19 measurements taken by the government, we’re not able to host a face-to-face SPARK event this year.


Why is SPARK 2020 being delivered digital ?

We’ve been sparking ideas, innovations and relationships that transform business for over 30 years. Using our global footprint, we bring innovators and change agents together, discussing and demonstrating the technology, strategies and personalities that are changing the way the world does business.

Because communication is at its most effective face to face, our preferred platform has always been, and will always be, live events. They enable rapid interaction, knowledge sharing, quick evaluation of people, partners, products and ideas, the creation of new relationships and the strengthening of existing ones. Usually in a powerful two or three day experience.
But our business is not events, it’s the sparking of ideas, innovations and relationships that will help you succeed. And we all need these now more than at any time in history.
Until we meet again in person, our commitment therefore is to deliver these using the most innovative digital tools in the most innovative way. And in so doing we hope we will all learn not only to survive, but to thrive and grow together as we move into a future at the same time more exciting and more perilous than we ever imagined.
