Continuing on from the great success of similar rooms at the 2014 Shanghai and 2013 London Conferences, the 2015 New York Conference incorporated four Regional / Theme Rooms within the main Conference program. These Regional / Theme Rooms, hosted by the top Diamond level sponsors, focused on research and development within a theme or geographical area to reinforce the “Global Interchanges” overall Conference theme (for example, the Americas Room, the Asia Room, and the Middle East Room). Each Regional / Theme Room was an integral part of the main conference, accommodating an audience of approximately 250 people at 15 presentations over the two main conference days.
The Regional / Theme Rooms also served as an exhibition suite for the Diamond sponsors, alongside other project-connected Gold sponsors, to create top-scale exhibition suites. The conference lunches and coffee breaks also took place in these Regional / Theme rooms. In addition, the papers supporting the presentations in these rooms were bound into stand-alone Region Room Books published in conjunction with the Conference Proceedings.
