ATMOsphere Methodology

ATMOsphere events are unique. ATMOsphere Europe 2011 is an interactive workshop that brings industry and policy together in one event to discuss what needs to be done on both sides to enhance the use of natural refrigerants for different applications. To cater for this need, the following features will be provided:
  • More time for networking, including networking meeting rooms to set up individual meetings
  • Online ATMOsphere community as a discussion forum before, during, and after the event
  • Realtime phone polling
  • More interactivity with targeted discussion questions
  • Moderated workshop discussions in groups of 10; preselected to ensure equal distribution of policy, suppliers, retailers, NGOs and associations
  • ATMOsphere report with 10-point action plan published after the event
