Santathon 2020: Join CW for a fun webinar to explore tech to help Father Christmas deliver this Christma! 

About the event

Santa 2.0 – deep tech to help Father Christmas

2020, it’s been different, and same for the big man – so we thought we’d lend a hand.

With more than two billion children around the world, and Christmas rapidly approaching, Santa could do with some help from the technology community this year.

Join CW for a fun webinar where key speakers (all on the good list) explore how Santa Claus can use deep tech to make his important deliveries.

Three short talks will explore tech such as 5G, Internet of Things (IOT), Augmented Reality (AR)/ Virtual Reality (VR) and satellites to help Santa with probably the biggest logistical challenge of all time – packing the millions of presents, loading the sleigh, navigating around the world at breakneck speed, and finding the right chimneys to climb down.

The webinar will finish up with a lighted-hearted panel session hosted by Peter Whale of Vision Formers.

The cost of the event is £10+VAT with all proceeds going to Ely Foodbank, who provide help to local people at the time of crisis, and help to move forward, in the region north of Cambridge. CW will make up to the closest £1000.
