The audience is up for cross disciplinary discussion on a variety of subjects across different disciplines such as technical, business-focused, environmental, social and many more.

The day at Trampoline is filled with sessions offered by attendees on the day – nothing is given priority, nothing is locked in until it starts. Each session is 20 minutes long and is focussed on sharing something amazing. At any given point, there will be four or five sessions happening so you can choose what you watch.
