The E-conferences began back in 2002 – the year that digital capacity exceeded analogue storage handling abilities for the first time, signalling the advent of the digital age. “It’s just incredible to think about all the changes that have occurred in the field since then,” says E-18’s project manager, Søren Therkelsen. “The internet was still a new household thing, and progress has anything but slowed down since.” The life-changing pace of technological evolution is perhaps best felt when we consider that the smartphone – and the app development that accompanied it – only really gained traction ten years ago.
