Virtual event 2020
Our online event has four main components: panel discussions; delegate blog posts; groupwork; virtual common room. Access is restricted to registered delegates.
Our panel discussions will be streamed live with a moderated question-and-answer session. Recordings of the discussions will be available afterwards. Times of the panel discussion reflect that our panellists, and our delegates, will be joining us from a number of time zones.
