Market lounge:

In the market lounge the sessions will be more intimate and personal than a parallel session, and we offer you three sessions with a maximum of 10 participants.

You will hear a 15 minute presentation from a single presenter, immediately followed by a 10 minute discussion with the speaker and the other 10 participants. Discussing in smaller groups will give you an opportunity for a more detailed conversation with great networking opportunities.

Once you have concluded your first session, participants will move on to their next table and hear a further two more presentations in the same format.

With a faster pace than a parallel session, the market lounge encourages brevity/efficient dialogue and gives you initial contact with key players and interested parties.

CleanMed Europe staff will be on hand to help run the session.
