This conference gives the opportunity to a limited number of organisations to present themselves to the key stakeholders in the field through 6 sqm mini-booths (view floor plan).

Exhibitors are granted a unique opportunity to meet attendees before and after sessions and during all breaks. As there are only a very limited number of booths available, high visibility can be guaranteed. The mini-booths will be positioned to fit naturally into the flow of conference traffic, so the opportunities to engage with attendees are ensured.
