We held a cut-down version of our Annual Conference online on a single day. 580 Delegates (649 in total registered on the App) joined for a busy and concentrated day of some 14 presentations across two streams as well as sponsors' presentations from Ardens, our Headline Sponsor and Gold Sponsors; Primary Care IT, Medlink and iGPR.
We had Silver Sponsors also in Vantage Health and MJOG. An Exhibition area of 18 companies, including 3 virtual stands from EMIS with trainers and representatives, delivered product demos, advice and various other presentations and demos took place in breakout rooms.
We used a multi-feature conference App called SpotMe and it was certainly a new, interesting and very time consuming experience getting it all set up. Being our first foray into the virtual world, it went surprisingly smoothly, though sadly we do not have a recording of the excellent and insipiring 'Keynote' from Dr Massood Nazir who spoke eloquently and movingly of the trials and tribulations and ultimate flexibility and rapid adaptations shown by Primary care in the face of the Covid-19 pandemoic and the changes which will now be carried though the next months and probably years. Nor did we manage to capture the popular 'Challenge the Geeks' session, however we do have available most of the sessions here (but without the Q&A sessions - we'll know better how to do it all next time!).
