A: If you are a newcomer, be sure to attend the First Forum: Newcomers to Forum Breakfast Gathering on Wednesday morning. Seasoned members will lead table discussions with first timers and give you the lay of the land for getting the most out of your first Forum experience.
Dinner groups hosted by AIR members provide additional opportunities for networking and are scheduled at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 31 and Wednesday, June 1. Anyone can organize a dinner group, and AIR staff will help with location suggestions and reservations. Additionally, many regional and state organizations host dinner groups after their meeting at 6 p.m. on either Wednesday, June 1 or Thursday, June 2. Dinner groups can be added to your online schedule via the online scheduling tool or mobile app. Dinner groups meet up at the Hyatt Regency and go together to pre-arranged locations. Dinner groups are optional, and attendees pay their own tabs at the restaurant.
The Exhibit Hall, AIR’s networking hub, also provides ample opportunity to meet and mingle with colleagues during the welcome reception, coffee and dessert breaks and lunch hour. Poster sessions are also located here. And don’t forget to visit our sponsor booths and learn about the latest tools and services for IR and related fields.
