Healthcare Brokerage Event 2020 - Enterprise Europe Network - VIRTUAL

Bilateral online meetings
The brokerage event will be only virtually in 2020.
Therefore we can offer you more opportunities for bilateral meetings. Traditionally we had 3 meeting days during MEDICA. This year it is 4 days during MEDICA, 2 days before MEDICA and 5 days after MEDICA.
Before MEDICA: 22.10 and 3.11
During MEDICA: 16.11, 17.11, 18.11 and 19.11.2020
After MEDICA in 2021: 14.1, 27.1, 16.2, 11.3 and 29.3
We hope that with the greater flexibility, you will have more opportunities for bilateral talks.
