These sessions will be delivered as a traditional plenary or panel where delegates will have the opportunity to pose questions via the event app. Session capacities will range from 200 – 1,200 delegates.
There will be two debates, where we explore serious topics using an adversarial format with teams supporting and opposing a motion. These sessions will be energetic, humorous and deliberately provocative to raise awareness of sensitive issues. Delegates will have the opportunity to pose questions via the event app. Session capacity will be up to 600 delegates.
These are 15-minute filmed sessions delivered by topic experts. Delegates will have the opportunity to pose questions at the end of filming. These sessions will be streamed live via Facebook Live and available online via SEI post-event. Session capacity will be up to 200 delegates.
These are sessions designed to delve deeper into topics explored in plenaries. Delegates will hear short presentations from topic experts and this will be followed by discussion. At least 50% of the time will be allocated to participation. Session capacity will be either up to 48 or up to 80 delegates (depending on room).
These sessions will have no AV and are designed to offer delegates the opportunity to actively contribute to a range of topics facilitated by expert chairs. Delegates will be invited to identify their potential contribution via the event registration system. Confirmed contributors will be named on the online programme and involved in pre-event co-production with the session facilitator. Session capacity will be 16-24 delegates.
