Meet the Speakers

To encourage interactions between speakers and delegates, the tradition of “Meet the Speakers” sessions will continued.

All speakers and delegates are invited to meet and get in contact in an informal atmosphere. Speakers of a session will be available for discussion during the lunch break following their session:
