More ways to connect
The conference events are a wonderful place to network (more information can be found on them here), however this year we have a few new options to even further increase your networking opportunity.
The Networking Room
Throughout the conference breakouts, this room will be made available to attendees as a networking retreat. Located in the middle of the breakout rooms it is easily accessible for a quick catch-up, quiet time away from the program and of course, networking. It will be open the same hours as the breakout sessions on Thursday 10am to 5pm & Friday 10am to 5pm.
The Networking Room will serve as our conference hub for late registrations, questions and similar. It is also where the NBBQA table will be located to assist with any association questions such as memberships, website access, sponsorships, and similar.
The Networking room will also be the location for the purchase of this year's conference pin (and limited previous years).
Happy hour events are held each day of the conference to encourage networking among members.
