Lunch Meetups

Looking to network with peers who share a similar passion, industry, job function or interest? You can grab your lunch on either day and go to Ballroom 20A to meet others who share a common interest.

Here’s How It Works:

WHEN: At lunchtime on Monday or Tuesday (meetups run 12:30-1:30PM on Monday and 12:15-1:15pm on Tuesday), go to the Networking Plaza and grab a box lunch. Then go to Ballrom 20A for your interest. Have more than one interest? Feel free to split your time and drop in on two areas.  See map below.


NOTE: The Meetup Room is also open during both morning networking breaks. Our staff will be available to help you find your peers.

WHAT: Choose one of these topics and go to the area that most sparks your interest.  There will be facilitators in the room to help you make connections.
