Participating in the Virtual Summit is a key opportunity to share information with MCT Colleagues from around the world in our Virtual Coffee Bar.

All of the content sessions are going to be recorded so if a trainer has a conflict or wants to see multiple sessions at the same time they will be able to review any session.
