Agenda

Unlike other events, TowerXchange Meetups create a tailor made agenda for each participant; combining a mix of market forecasts, roundtable sessions, keynote panels, working groups and networking events to connect you directly with the people and information you need to find.

Preparations for the 2018 agenda are underway. If you would like to enquire about joining a panel or hosting a roundtable, please contact Laura Graves, MD, EMEA: lgraves@towerxchange.com
