ECOC Exhibition 2020
07-09 December
Virtual Event

After 24 years of you coming to us, ECOC Exhibition 2020 is coming to you!

Whilst we would have hoped to be able to welcome you to the exhibition halls in Brussels in December for our 25th anniversary event, due to the ongoing restrictions and circumstances beyond our control, including travel disruptions due to the pandemic, both the ECOC exhibition and conference have no alternative but to move to become a fully online event.

Our priority will always be the health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and all of our attendees and so although we are disappointed that we won’t get to see you in person this year, we wanted to make sure as many visitors and exhibitors can still experience the key meeting place for the optical communications industry in a safe way.

Take a look at our FAQ’s pages to discover how our virtual exhibition will work and watch our event preview video below to see what you can expect this year.
