This session is a fun way to wrap up a day’s conversation and debate. We present a panel of industry experts with a series of hypothetical deals. Their task? To answer three simple questions:

1. Would they do the deal?
2. How would they price the deal?
3. Would they distribute the deal?

The audience then votes on whether they agree with the panel’s decisions.
