Great interest in The Digital Dutch goes Digital

KPN’s online broadcast attracted twice as many visitors as last year

More than five thousand of KPN’s corporate customers watched the online broadcast of the event The Digital Dutch goes Digital. Due to the corona crisis, the annual event was replaced by a broadcast from an empty convention hall in Utrecht, in which the importance of being digitally connected to each other was central. Two thousand visitors attended the event last year.

All the speakers who were due to be on the main stage at the live The Digital Dutch event featured in the hour-long online broadcast. “Their stories are more current today than ever”, said Marieke Snoep, Chief of the Business Market at KPN. “Right now, Dutch entrepreneurs needs inspiration and insights to help them make progress. Digital communication and online collaboration are a crucial part of society.”
