PepTalk-Plaza

Conferences are designed for building connections. Sometimes though, you need a designated meeting space and common interest to make those connections. We are excited to offer the PepTalk Plaza as a gathering place to facilitate connections.

The PepTalk Plaza located in the Exhibit Hall provides a meeting spot for people with similar interests to convene and construct a plan to take advantage of all that PepTalk: The Protein Science Week has to offer.
