Delegates from the events industry gathered at the BFI IMAX yesterday morning (7 March) to hear from a range of speakers and a panel on how they can ensure they are GDPR ready when 25 May comes around.
The event opened with a breakfast of pastries, smoked salmon bagels, cakes and fresh fruit skewers served with tea and coffee.
Zac Roby, director of TMB Events, began proceedings by taking the stage to talk about why implied consent is no longer permitted where data is concerned.
Next up, was Duncan Smith, director at iCompli, discussing the auditing process and what questions we should be asking.
This was followed by Sarah-Jane Johnston from XSEM talking about planning for compliancy in the future.
To finish off, there was a panel discussion featuring Richard Dutton, director at the Elias Partnership; Christel Cao-Delebarre, head of data privacy at CWT; Duncan Smith; and Carla Jones from Haymarket Media Group. The panel took questions from the audience around issues such as paper records, reconsenting campaigns and the buying and seeling of data post-GDPR.
