A message from the Chairman

Dear friends,
The postponement of EMEA PUG Challenge Vienna 2020 has had a significant impact on our ability to provide our community this year with the event we have come to love, and we have incurred substantial financial losses because of this. We concluded that there was still content to be shared, people to network with and things to learn - PUG Challenge Virtual 2020 was created based on our commitment to continue to deliver content to the community. We will therefore be delivering a virtual experience from November 4th - 6th 2020 which will include an interactive virtual expo and much more.
