producers take a step back
and have a re-think.

THE ROUNDTABLE LUNCH - 12pm - 1pm - Sandwiches

Meet the Networks Lunch...
During our lunch break we have given our Network representatives large tables of 10 to meet and greet attendees over the one hour break. 
 
Please note: There is no booking system for this - we encourage you to have a quick chat with a representative from the network and drop off your business cards for further discussions. Please keep meet and greets short and respect your other industry colleagues and our network representatives.

Given the size of the event we feel having 1-2-1 meetings system would be unfair to those that could not get a time slot. We will encourage you to move around during the hour break to different tables and quickly say hello to the hosts and drop off your business cards.
