Roundtable Topics

Expert speakers lead tables of 6-7 in tightly focused discussions.

  1. Choose a topic and join the table
  2. Meet the host and table guests
  3. Participate in an intimate, face-to-face exchange of ideas
  4. After two 25 minute table rotations, you’ll leave the session with a new set of contacts, a meeting set up for later that day and a step towards your next deal.

UPM 2021 will host two roundtable sessions on Days 2 and 3  to allow you multiple opportunities to join tables of interest.
