Virtual Round Tables

Virtual Round Tables

Virtual Round Tables (VRT) sessions will allow Summit attendees to create and participate in a dynamic, small group discussions on a particular topic of interest. VRT’s will also allow for an informal networking opportunity with experts and colleagues in a smaller group setting.

Each VRT will include up to 20 participants and be facilitated by one or more attendees who offered to lead a session. Session topics may include: follow up to concurrent sessions with a small group “around the podium” discussion; niche areas that are of interest to attendees focusing on a specialized area; introductions of longer workshops or trainings that may be offered at a later date; cutting edge topics in our field; demonstrations of new technologies or products, and many more.

Here are some helpful links to help you access and moderate your Virtual Round Table:
