Agenda 2020

Morning networking session

The Silicon Market forum platform allows many opportunities for face-to-face networking. During these sessions you will be invited to join a video conference. Every ten minutes you will be moved into a new ''room'' with new participants. This session is an ideal opportunity to greet fellow attendees and to make plans for one-to-one meetings later in the event.
