Expanded! Table Talks

Tuesday, April 2 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM « Back

Formerly labeled as “roundtable discussions,” Table Talks are moderated, informal conversations focused on a wide range of specific industry topics. Each talk begins with a one- to three-minute presentation by the table host, leaving seven to nine minutes for open dialogue and Q&A before a rotation is suggested. The room moderator will alert participants every 10 minutes. This year’s event will feature a record number of discussions!
