Roundtable Sessions

The opportunity to engage in small group discussions with all the speakers from the day, the Roundtable Sessions are always a highlight of Sound City conferences.  The roundtables bring together our speakers and delegates to talk over a number of topics, make new contacts and ultimately do business together. Each session lasts 25 minutes and then guests are invited to change tables and engage in conversation with other industry delegates.
