DIGITAL UTILITY AWARDS AND SYMPOSIUM
Was live on Thursday 22 October 2020
2020 has been a challenging year to say the least and it was essential that we continued to recognise the achievements around us. Recognition is a powerful way for our society to continue forward, even when it feels like it’s at a standstill.
We were hoping to announce the winners at an in-person awards night before the end of the year, but with the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions a live event just wasn't possible.
Therefore, on Thursday 22 October, we honoured the winners and finalists of the 2020 Digital Utility Awards at a virtual event, comprising industry presentations and the much-anticipated awards ceremony.
Before the awards ceremony, attendees had the opportunity to hear from a selection of industry experts on the topic of data analytics, and listen to a panel discussion on how COVID-19 has changed utility digital transformation priorities.
These presentations facilitated the knowledge sharing portion of the event, with a strong emphasis on providing useful information and creating genuine discussion around topical issues.
