NEW for 2020! The in-booth sessions are a brand new concept for Dairy Strong in an effort to provide attendees with even more content and experts from the dairy community. Some of our most impactful interactions happen in a casual atmosphere. Picture a “pop-up” session that takes place directly in the presenter’s trade show booth as a scheduled time.
Here’s how it works: The schedule of in-booth sessions is below and in all printed collateral. We’ll have signage on site too to help direct attendees. There is some overlap with Innovation Stage sessions, but there is only one in-booth session at a time.
Sessions last for 30 minutes or less. There are cocktail tables and other mobile seating options available for 20-30 people. We designed these sessions to allow for conversation and casual feedback between presenter and attendee.
