THANK YOU!

PhotonWorld 2020 our largest show yet!

PhotonWorld 2020 was Photon’s sixth invitation-only, virtual event for senior executives in the rapidly evolving digital space.

This year, PhotonWorld featured distinguished visionary leaders—across retail, CPG, healthcare, and BFSI—who shared their experiences and insights on how to succeed in a digital-only world.

Core Themes for PhotonWorld 2020

The primary focus for PhotonWorld 2020 was “Digital Platform Evolution Beyond the Transformation.” We have covered various themes over the years at PhotonWorld—namely Mobile-First, Omnichannel Digital Experiences, and thinking digital beyond the transformation. A big focus of today’s digital world is the pivot from Projects to Platforms and Products. Other major trends and themes we covered this year at PhotonWorld 2020 include Core Digital—Establishing a Robust Digital Foundation, Data is the New Digital, Fostering Rapid Innovation with CloudTech, MarTech, and A Post-COVID World—Reaction to Change.

“We are thankful and humbled by the fact that each of these high-ranking digital executives from leading global brands would take the time to support our program and confirm Photon’s leadership position in a very large, highly competitive, digital ecosystem of vendors.”
