An interative educational experience

The ESMO Academy is a highly interactive conference enhanced by the use of an interactive tool called SpotMe. Each delegate will need a tablet with the SpotMe app in order to facilitate their participation in the programme, maximise their Academy experience and interact with others. Once the SpotMe app is installed on the tablet / smart device, participants will be able to receive information on the Academy agenda and the faculty members, participate in assessment tests, interact directly with the presenters during the sessions, exchange personal details with other attendees, access event documents and receive information from the organisers prior to and during the Academy.
