We’ve created an array of opportunities for you to meet and collaborate with your colleagues in a virtual setting at DDW 2021:

  • Establish relationships: Engage with other attendees and speakers to form partnerships, and share experiences, ideas and solutions in small-group networking sessions.
  • Engage with chat: Interact directly with other attendees in group chats or through one-on-one discussions.
