At the beginning of the panel discussion, the student moderator will introduce the panelists and give them the opportunity to briefly introduce themselves and their company (5–10 minutes). Each panel will consist of five to six industry professionals. During the roundtable networking event, each organization can host a table to connect in small group conversations. Each table has a capacity of eight. There are three rounds of roundtable networking sessions, each lasting 30 minutes.
