NETWORKING SESSIONS

To provide congress delegates with additional networking opportunities, we have scheduled interactive focus sessions that will run daily in parallel from 17:30-18:30 on the 25th and 26th of October.

The aim of these sessions, led by an expert working in the palliative care sector, is to foster interactions and exchanges between delegates from different international cultures and backgrounds by bringing together smaller groups of participants with common interests to explore more challenging topics linked to the themes of the plenary presentations.

Please note that networking sessions can only be booked on-line congress registration page in connection with the registration for the congress.
Participation in the networking sessions will be limited to a maximum of 60 participants, places will be allocated on a first come first-served basis.

Terms and  Conditions:

  • It is possible to sign up for only one session daily
  • Participation in the focus sessions is free (please register only if you are truly interested in attending as you may preclude another delegate from participating)
