We could argue that the real value of attending a conference is the ability to meet and network with peers who share the same challenges and experiences as you. That’s why we’ve built-in a wide-range of networking opportunities throughout the three-day conference. From Breakfast and Luncheon events to Cocktail receptions and excursions to New York City, there are plenty of opportunities to take part in!
