Open exclusively to AIDC Gold and All Access Pass-holders, Roundtables are an informal discussion hosted by one of our international Decision Makers. It’s the perfect chance to learn more about the current commissioning or acquisitions needs of the organisations they represent.

Please note: these are not pitch sessions. Roundtables are an intimate discussion gathering with a limited number of participants –  making them a great networking opportunity.
