Date and time




We are glad to invite you to the upcoming Namex Annual Meeting 2020. The event will be held entirely online in accordance with the existing restrictions.

The schedule will be as follows:

During the morning we will have a plenary session; for all the information about the event you can check our dedicated website.

In the afternoon, we will host again the One-to-One meeting sessions, this time using a virtual formula.

One-to-one meetings are a great opportunity for all attendees to schedule bilateral meetings in order to build new business and technical relationships within the Namex community.

In this edition we are using Meeting Mojo. The registration is managed by the Namex staff and it will be processed after your registration on Eventbrite.

This year we are also organizing a workshop session, proposing a series of parallel webinars during the afternoon. We will provide soon details on this session.
