Connecta Bern Today and tomorrow
We don’t need to say much to make the current situation clear. We’re still in the midst of a pandemic, with no end in sight.
In 2020, we responded to the new circumstances in many different ways. We set out on new, unknown paths with #ConnectaDoc, a genuine record of our times and #ConnectaTV. With #ConnectaTalk we carried out interviews with a range of motivated speakers and thousands of you joined us.
It’s you that makes Connecta Bern so special. Our guests, friends and partners. The community as a whole.
But the pandemic isn’t over. And we can’t assume that coronavirus will simply be history a few weeks after vaccines are hopefully approved in 2021. It would also be difficult to plan an event with many participants in the coming year.
This is why we’ve decided not to hold the event physically in 2021.
However, a Connecta Bern will take place on Wednesday, 6 October 2021 – entirely digitally and hopefully with as many of you as possible taking part. We’re working hard to provide another unique experience in October.
Stay tuned and stay healthy!
Connecta is a must for all those interested in digitization and who want to discuss its effects on society and business. The annual Swiss Post and PostFinance event brings together invited leaders and experts.
The fifth anniversary event to be held on Wednesday, 21 October 2020 was scheduled to feature more than 80 speakers from both at home and abroad, more than 40 hours of concentrated knowledge and around 250 guests. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we had reluctantly been forced to abandon our goal of presenting a normal Connecta. The health of everyone involved is our main concern and cannot be entirely guaranteed, even with the most secure protection plan. However, we wanted to give Connecta a new lease of life and have developed some great digital alternatives:
During this one-hour programme, multi-award-winning journalist Katrin-Cécile Ziegler and her fascinating studio guests will discuss trade, digitization and the new normal.
Don’t miss the one-hour premiere of Connecta TV on 21 October 2020 from 2 p.m., here on the website: swisspost.ch/connecta-tv.
But that’s not all! In 2020, Connecta is celebrating its fifth anniversary. We have a gift for you, exploring recent years and, more particularly, this exceptional year: the 30-minute documentary shows you everything that has happened since 16 March 2020, the day lockdown began in Switzerland: what has changed and, more importantly, what the future holds?
The documentary will be available from 21 October 2020 from 3 p.m., here on the website: swisspost.ch/connecta-doc.
In cooperation with Aileen Zumstein we have conducted video interviews with Connecta speakers.
If you know Martin Rechsteiner, aka Pokipsie, you’ll also know that his podcasts always make for good listening. Martin Rechsteiner conducted fascinating and exciting interviews with several Connecta speakers (only available in German).
