  • Engage and Exchange sessions are 45-60 minutes to an audience of no more than 50 people, with content focused on case studies and solving real-world problems in a collaborative environment.
  • It will take place in a dynamic workspace within the Exhibit Hall, during exhibit hours.
  • Facilitators will be responsible for encouraging participants to recall and analyze information, share their personal experiences, draw conclusions, and/or practice new skills.
  • The focus of an Engage and Exchange session is to have the attendees work together, and the role of the presenter(s) is to facilitate these discussions with less emphasis on a didactic presentation.
