What is The Lab?

At The Lab, ComNet17 attendees have the chance to meet one-on-one with companies who are transforming the way we communicate for an interactive lesson on how their game-changing products and tools, combined with a powerful vision, can change the way we see the world.

These meetings will empower you to learn how to use (or better use) a communications product or program, while establishing a valuable professional connection.  This is a great opportunity for future partnerships or collaborations.

Key information about The Lab:

  • Unlike many conference exhibition spaces, The Lab is structured around appointments.
  • The Lab will take place throughout the day on Thursday, September 28, 2017.  
  • Meetings will last 20min.
