It’s not all work during the conference. We alsohave scheduled approximately 13 hours of activities such as receptions, orientations, meals and snacks, and stretch breaks to allow plenty of time for networking and digesting what you have learned. And that’s not counting after-hours activities that are not on the schedule!

With nearly 400 registrants expected at the conference, along with the abundance of program content, attendees should have little difficulty building their global networks to expand their ideas and knowledge.
