A: The Exhibit Hall, AIR's networking hub, provides ample opportunity to meet and mingle with colleagues on Wednesday and Thursday during Exhibit Hall hours. Activities in the Exhibit Hall include a networking reception on Wednesday afternoon, coffee and dessert breaks, and lunch hour. You can purchase lunch items from cash carts in/near the Exhibit Hall and enjoy them at tables located throughout the Exhibit Hall and Foyer. Special per diem-friendly menu pricing will be available at cash carts.
Poster sessions are also located in the Exhibit Hall and provide opportunities for discussion and conversation while learning about the latest research through visual displays.
While you are networking, remember to visit our sponsor booths and learn about the latest tools and services for IR and related fields, and gain new partners for success.
Dinner groups hosted by AIR members provide additional opportunities for networking and are scheduled on Tuesday, May 29. Anyone can organize a dinner group, and AIR staff can help with location suggestions and reservations. Additionally, many regional and state organizations host dinner groups after their meetings at 6 p.m. on either Wednesday or Thursday. Dinner groups should meet at the Rosen Shingle Creek Bus Loop and go together to pre-arranged locations. Dinner groups are optional, and attendees pay for their own meals at the restaurant. More information will be available in the online schedule in May.
