5pm: Pre-conference social catch-up

A great opportunity to connect with others before the official program begins. This is a casual event where attendees can pop in and out. Come by to say hi, order a drink or stay for dinner, the choice is yours (all purchases at own expense).

If you are feeling nervous about attending on your own; please email us so we can chat and make arrangements for you to arrive with someone else, if needed.
