Introducing Guided Discussion

New to this year, Guided Discussion sessions are designed to enhance attendee experience while promoting idea sharing and collaboration. Attendees are invited to select one session based on their topic of interest, led by a thought leader. Later in the program, session leaders will re-group on the mainstage to share key takeaways to share with the audience as a whole.

Guided Discussion sessions are open to registered attendees only. Haven’t registered for the Summit yet?
