What can I expect from attending the forum?

The forum is an exciting event experience that promotes learning, knowledge-exchange and interaction. It will be hosted in a dedicated virtual event platform. It features a comprehensive program built for the virtual space – there will be two program blocks per day to cater to participants from different sides of the world with timely breaks to allow you to network with other participants and take care of other business in between sessions. There will be several insightful presentations and discussions from thought leaders, hospital decision-makers and health system actors. They will share good practices, innovations and solutions from around the globe. The event will have plenary and concurrent sessions with a mix of live and pre-recorded presentations but all live Q&A, polls and chat. You’ll have on-demand access to all sessions so if you miss any of them (eg because of the time difference or if you’re attending another concurrent session), you can catch up any time. There will also be virtual round table discussions that you can join. Ultimately, the forum will provide an excellent opportunity to learn, connect and network with industry peers.
