A new edition of the traditional IT One Gala will take place on 1 December 2020 at LuxExpo The Box in Luxembourg-Kirchberg.

As usual, the event will be composed of a series of conferences, a networking session and a gala dinner during which the Luxembourg ICT Awards will be distributed.

Due to the current health situation, the format of the event will be slightly different than usual: the networking cocktail will take place during the conference itself. The Luxembourg ICT Awards ceremony will be part of the gala dinner and will reward the best local practices and most innovative solutions and projects.
