Meet the Expert lunches

As a participant at MatchPoints, you get an unique opportunity to network with and learn from one of the experts from the conference through our Meet-the-Expert lunches.

The concept is an informal lunch with a keynote or expert from the conference. Up to twelve participants can attend in each lunch, and the lunch encourages a lively exchange of ideas and provides space for making new valuable contacts. As a special case this year, we have set up a business lunch with Alexandra Instituttet, particularly aimed at companies focusing on cybermaturity.

Please note, that the seats are available at a first come-first served basis.

Below you can see the locations for your Meet the Expert lunches.
