The first part of our meeting will be dedicated to short presentations in Pecha Kucha format, starting at 11.00 sharp. You will be able to hear stories and case studies about event management from the speakers listed below. Do not be shy and ask them any question that pops your mind – go ahead and make their day! After the “official” part, it is time for networking – make the best out of it over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, however you like it best.

Enjoy your time – we are already looking forward to meeting you at Conventa trade show in January!
