Network session
As a visitor at The Danish Fly Festival 2017 you can participate in one or more network sessions. The network sessions are managed by two coordinators who initiates the session with a short presentation followed by free conversation on the subject. So it is the participants who influence the sessions direction and what will be exchanged in the network.It is expected that the maximum participators will be 20-25 people. Participation will require registration prior to the meeting.

However, they have announced this being a talk in Danish, which will be very interesting, as one knows – the Danes don´t even understand each other.
