Event Information

Title: Storage Talks (Formerly Table Talks)

Description:

The pandemic has changed a few things, including the way we’re handling roundtable discussions at this year’s expo. You’ll still have access to 30 unique topics, organized by theme; but instead of moving from table to table, you’ll make yourself comfortable in a chair, and the presenters will rotate on stage! Simply choose your room, sit back, and enjoy five short presentations by industry experts. Each segment will be 10 minutes, including a short introduction by the speaker followed by several minutes of dialog and Q&A with the audience. 

Open to all registered attendees and exhibitors.
