Discussion zone

Discussion zone

"Do you know the feeling when you raise your hand to ask a question and the track owner announces: “There’s time left for one question only”. Of course, he doesn’t pick you to ask that question. And then the speaker disappears behind the doors of the speakers' room.

To avoid this, we organized special discussion areas: allocated space with flipcharts, seats and an opportunity to have a cup of coffee, where every speaker after holding a talk came to review the nuances of his lecture, exchange useful information and discuss the participants' own current projects."
