XPONENTIAL Interactive Discussions
Tuesday, May 09, 2017: 12:15 PM - 1:15 PM
Seven XPONENTIAL Interactive Discussion Groups will provide conference attendees an opportunity to deeply engage, network, and evolve the thinking on topics for which they care deeply. Each discussion group will consist of an integrated roundtable of industry specialists, such as: researchers, entrepreneurs, regulators, service and product designers, or end-users with a deep curiosity about their topic. In the span of one hour, each discussion group will produce guidance, thought leadership, or an advanced opinion on their selected topic to debrief with others. The debrief will be graphically recorded with the product posted in the XPO Hall during the afternoon reception.
Participants in each discussion group will self-select into a topic that has been pre-dertmined based on attendee feedback. Two "Wild Card" topics will be determined in real time during the Tuesday morning keynote session.
