How did the first poster session go?
It was a great success! The poster session featured as a key part of the programme enabling all interested stakeholders to interact directly with participants and discuss in an intimate format. The Sessions counted with 24 international speakers from all backgrounds, with digital posters which allowed interactive features including: interactive polls, videos, and allowed the zooming of a specific section that the presenter wanted to focus on.
Equally, the presenter did not have to carry the poster in his/her trip and could even modify it a few days before to ensure that the poster was fully updated.
