NCT Virtual Asia took place on November 12-13, 2020 in official partnership with the ASEAN Regional Mine Action Center (ARMAC). For this Asian edition, representatives of the CBRNe, C-IED, EOD community coming from more than 30 different countries gathered over the duration of two days. NCT Virtual Asia not only saw the participation of Asian stakeholders, but also of delegations from the United States, Canada, Brazil, Colombia, the Middle East and Europe.
During this two-days event, high-level speakers shared their knowledge during multiple conference sessions chaired by BG (Ret.) William King, while the virtual exhibition gave our attendees the opportunity to visit industry booths and interact with the sales representatives.
Multiple Asian organizations working in the CBRNe field were given the chance to promote their work and current projects, within dedicated Pavilions. Delegates had the opportunity to visit the ARMAC Pavilion, the ANAMA Pavilion, the Counter Terrorism & Jungle Warfare (CTJW) College Pavilion.
By spending an average time of 5 hours 22 minutes on the virtual platform, attendees proved again their interest in our virtual platform and its intuitive way of navigating. With more than 2700 Booth visits and hundreds of chats initiated, NCT Virtual Asia was a success in terms of interactivity and engagement.
For the first time in 2020, the NCT Virtual leaderboard contributed to the interactivity of our platform by promoting actions of our delegates within the virtual platform (visiting booths, downloading content, or initiating chats). For each action, our delegates could earn points and compete against their peers for a nice reward!
NCT Virtual Asia was the last event of 2020 and concluded a challenging year requiring adaptability and innovation. The NCT Team will continue to provide the opportunity to enable the CBRNe community to exchange knowledge and interact on the NCT Virtual Platform. We are happy to make the platform available to any organization eager to enhance internal interactions or develop their relations with external stakeholders.
