What are Knowledge Sharing Sessions?
The knowledge sharing sessions bring together discovery and research in Agriculture, Science & Technology, Health, Education and International Business. Industry leaders and explorers share their findings with the festival audience in a face to face environment, designed to inspire and educate. The idea of a knowledge share is quite simple; When one nation finds a success that helps its people, it is logical to assume that success can help other nations as well. The broad international audience at the festival provides a wide exposure for attendee and speaker alike. Knowledge Sharing sessions take place during the film festival, cultural performances and diplomatic appearances.
