LONDON—Despite the cancellation of the 2021 IBC in-person event, IBC is refining its IBC Digital online program to reflect last minute changes. 

IBC Digital, which started Oct. 21 and runs through March 13, features exhibitors as well as a series of keynotes, panel discussions, technical papers, a series of workflow tours, accelerator projects and the IBC Awards ceremony. The in-person IBC Show was scheduled for Dec. 3-6 at the RAI in Amsterdam but was cancelled last week due to concerns over COVID-19.
