Upplägg och genomförande
The first 2 days of the 3 day conference was held at the offices of WilmerHale on 60 Sate street, Boston MA. The +20 speakers gave the participants valuable information, insights and answered questions. The dinner on day 2 included all participants + speakers together with local key holders and experts for optimized networking.
