This year, the JNA Awards celebration will span weeks instead of being limited to one evening. A series of webinars and events featuring Honourees and Sponsor Partners, who are the movers and shakers of the global trade, will be held starting from September, culminating with sessions during J&G Digital World‘s live days. The virtual event is scheduled for 27 – 29 October.
