Networking in the Exhibit Hall

Networking events in the Exhibit Hall are excellent opportunities for attendees to browse exhibitor displays between technical sessions. The exhibition kicks off with the Exhibit Opening Reception and Poster Session on Monday, February 24, and follows up with the Exhibit Hall Happy Hour and Poster Session on Tuesday, February 25. Both events will feature appetizers and beverages, as well as networking with exhibitors, poster presenters, and colleagues. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, attendees will be provided with complimentary lunch in the Exhibit Hall.
