Programme and Exhibition Networking

Forge connections at the grand opening

The Congress welcomes over 7,000 stakeholders from diverse backgrounds in an informal atmosphere, fostering genuine connections in a unique and welcoming setting. Seize the chance to engage with professionals during the Opening Ceremony, strike up conversations, and build relationships that can lead to collaborations and partnerships.

Engage in interactive sessions that fuel networking success

All sessions offer a dynamic platform for participants to engage in more than just traditional lectures. They facilitate a vibrant exchange of ideas, questions, and debates, transforming the typical passive learning experience into an active, collaborative endeavour.

Brewing collaborations over lunch and coffee breaks

Engage in open dialogues and idea exchange during seated lunches. Coffee breaks offer opportunities for focused discussions, exchanging contact information and facilitating future collaborations. These networking moments not only benefit individuals, but also contribute to collective knowledge and field advancements.

Networking redefined on the exhibition floor

Featuring 100+ exhibitors, the Congress exhibition floor is a bustling hub of innovation, learning and networking. Located at the event's heart, where key Congress sessions, workshops, and talks will be taking place nearby, it's easily accessible, fostering a seamless transition between knowledge sharing and connecting.

A grand welcome reception is planned right on the exhibition floor. This reception is open to all attendees, and it is the ideal opportunity to introduce yourself to new faces, build connections, and strengthen your company’s relations with previous stakeholders in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.
