Round Table Sessions
Friday-Tuesday, February 16-20, 11.30 am-12.30 pm

The Round Table Sessions will take place daily from February 16 to February 20 from 11.30 am-12.30 pm. At four tables located at different spots of the EFM Producers Hub, around six producers per table will have discussions and consultancy with an expert of ACE Producers.

The experts are the consultants and moderators of each session. They lead the discussion in order to optimise the outcome for the participants.

Producers can apply to participate in up to two sessions at a certain table between table 1 to table 4, during the whole EFM upon availability, by addressing their request to ACE Producers.
