6Connex To Offer Virtual Environment Hosting Inside the European Union

6Connex will be the only global provider offering virtual event hosting in the US or the EU.

Pleasanton, CA / May 08, 2018 – As the only vendor dedicated to innovation in online events, 6Connex today announced the availability of dedicated hosting of virtual events and environments inside the European Union (EU).  The 6Connex platform is hosted entirely in the cloud, on Amazon Web Services, and is now available on AWS in the US or in the EU.

Data protection within the EU has always been important and the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect May 25, 2018, takes further steps to make data even safer for EU citizens. While all companies who handle data will need to comply with the GDPR, European companies face greater hurdles and greater uncertainty when they deal with companies based in the US.  The option to host data on AWS inside the EU will have a significant positive impact on European companies, saving both time and money for internal reviews, security audits and other processes.

“Our European clients have asked for an option to host inside the EU, and we are delivering,” said Mike Nelson, 6Connex CEO. “We are the only global provider with this option, and the only virtual event provider continuing to innovate for our clients.”

The 6Connex virtual event platform will also be fully compliant with the GDPR, helping all customers meet the GDPR for their own data collection and hosting needs.
