Our most eclectic and not-to-be-missed line-up of Agency Sessions ever – more reasons to attend the conference!

With this year’s Conference (26-28 June) already shaping up to be the most insightful and streamlined yet, we’re handing over the baton to Agency Fair exhibitors to inspire thought-provoking debate. This year’s line-up of agency sessions is outstanding and demonstrates the wonderful breadth of knowledge our Associate members have amongst them and which they want to share with delegates at the conference.

These hugely popular sessions, which take place through Wednesday and Thursday’s Conference in Basel, offer a unique opportunity for insight, as presenting agencies can discuss anything they feel will resonate with delegates.

Short and sweet,  these 30 minute sessions during the Wednesday and Thursday,  offer delegates the choice of 5 sessions taking place in parallel - from data analytics to chatbots and patient centricity.  There is something on offer for everyone, whatever your passion or interest!  There are 20 sessions in total, so you can’t fail to find something you want to hear amongst these papers.

Full details for every one of the sessions is available on the Conference website here - but to give you a flavour of the variety on offer, our confirmed session’s titles are as follows:

  • QualWorld - Remote working heaven or home office hell?
  • Elma Research - Work Hard, Play Hard – “Disrupt” Workshop Experience with Gamification
