In a week of content and connectivity to remember, it was great to see our inaugural digital event so well received, with our range of media being consumed throughout the five days. 

During Jupiter ONLINE we were delighted to welcome hundreds of listeners and attendees during the week. We showcased a range of digital media, which included a series of online events such as podcasts, 1:1 meeting opportunities and a midweek webinar. 

LIVE webinar 

It was fantastic to have so many friendly faces from the industry access our first ever LIVE webinar. Debuting on Wednesday October 28, our CEO Mark Tweddle hosted our Joint MD Yvonne Tweddle and Gary Loh, the CEO of Dimuto, our blockchain solutions provider. 

In a bumper one-hour session the trio discussed key talking points surrounding food security, sustainability and the circular economy as well as our blockchain traceability story.
