Agenda
MEX is 2 days of collaboration, crafting a collective response to the event themes. The agenda is structured around 3 things: speaker sessions, where experts share their knowledge and engage in discussion; creative sessions, where you work in facilitated groups to create new ideas; and relaxed networking in a unique venue where you can meet new contacts over great food and drink. Find out about proposing yourself as a speaker or facilitator.
