Tremendous success for ALSO's virtual fair

On 28 April International Channel Trends+Visions, ALSO's virtual fair for
the IT industry, took place. After the very positive response the company
got on the digital CTV in the DACH region, it was now rolled out
internationally. The event took place simultaneously on seven platforms for
20 ALSO countries.

In less than four weeks the team got in touch with vendors, invited
resellers and talked to the press. The idea was met with an overwhelming
response: More than 250 vendors participated with booths, 285 presentations
were given by vendors and ALSO experts alike, and nearly 60 webinars held.
About 10.000 visitors across all the platforms got all the latest
information about trends and topics of the IT industry.

In his keynote Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO, stated the great chances
he sees for the IT industry. "The crisis can be an opportunity for everybody
- if you have the right partner, who invests in future technology and
platforms, and the right people."

There was a huge interest in solutions for the modern workplace and
consumptional business, presentations on Cybersecurity, the Internet of
things and offers for Home Office and Home School. Gustavo Möller-Hergt: "We
certainly miss the direct contact to our customers and due to their demands
we are reopening our offices again step by step. But at the same time we are
sure this won't have been the last virtual event ALSO organized. It is a
great way to stay connected and stay safe at the same time."

Due to the great response and many requests, the seven platforms of the
virtual International CTV will stay open until 3 May 2020.
