EXHIBITION CORNER

There will be an exhibition corner to give Big Data vendors, integrators and organizations the chance to present their solutions to attendees, build new collaboration opportunities and organize face-to-face meetings, even in the context of cPPPs.

The exhibition corner will be accessible during conference breaks and at lunch. Each booth will be equipped with a desk and a stool/chair, in order to allow exhibitors to display their material, such as presentations and demos on their laptops, giveaways and leaflets. There will also be the possibility to expose a roll-up (max dimensions 120x200 cm). The exhibition space will be equipped with electrical charge and wifi.

The booths will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, giving priority to BDVA members. This service is free of charge.
