Welcome to the first ever ‘Virtual’ EC Customer Forum!

Registration is closed

This year TietoEVRY's much anticipated EC Customer Forum (previously known as EC User Forum) is going virtual. This program format will be the most convenient for our customers to attend from different time zones across the globe.

The event will be hosted as a four hour digital event with insightful presentations and lively panel discussions involving TietoEVRY experts and key customer representatives. There will be opportunities to attend separate deep-dive sessions held later for some of the key topics during the event.

To summarize, there will be two separate regional events with identical programs; please sign up for only one of the dates, most convenient as per your time-zone.

As this is an 'invitation only event', your participation will be free of charge. Please register and we will email your joining credentials to you before the event.
