AGENDA

NETWORKING DINNER

18:00 - 22:00

BOOK A SEAT

Conferences are one of the best ways to meet people in your field; there aren’t many times in a year that you have access to the industry’s biggest and brightest, gathered together under one roof. Think about it...you can get a year’s worth of networking done over the course of one day. 

It’s said that the best way to retain knowledge is to share it with others. After the conference we will have a networking dinner where you will be able to meet other professionals and presenters.
