WHERE IS THE PARTY? WHERE IS THE DINE-AROUND?
WHERE CAN I MEET WITH MY FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES?
In the lounge. During the Congress, a lounge will be set up for those attendees requiring a private area to take care of daily business matters, or simply need an area to work from their personal computers. We know how important socialization is, that’s why we’ve reserved blocks of time strictly for chit-chatting with fellow attendees!
ARE THERE ANY OTHER OPPORTUNITIES FOR SOCIALIZATION?
There will be a bumpin’ party on Wednesday evening. Admission to the party is included with registration. There ain’t no party like an ILC party. But remember to match every Gin & Tonic with a nice refreshing cup of H2O. We don’t want you blurry-eyed and dehydrated Thursday morning.
More information concerning venue location coming soon.
PLEASE TELL ME YOU HAVE AN EXHIBITORS’ AREA!
DUH! Sponsors who receive Exhibit Tables in their sponsorship level will gain access to the exhibitors’ area the morning of the first day of the conference. A form will be provided that will list all of the load in/out details as well as information regarding specification sizes for your table and surrounding area. The form also includes an area for any special requests including electrical needs, WiFi, etc.
WILL I GET TO TALK TO INDUSTRY HOT SHOTS?
Yes! We know you hate the dreaded process of trying to play it cool while running to catch speakers after their panel. It’s awkward. We get it. That’s why we will give you plenty of opportunities to pick their minds (or just say hi).
One would be the ILC Roundtable on Wednesday afternoon. More info to come.
