These sessions allow attendees to interact with other people to exchange information.  It’s a great opportunity to connect with industry peers, find mentors, and share experiences.

Round Table Discussions – these hour-long gatherings provide participants with the chance to network and connect with peers.  Specific topics will be discussed and interesting conversation and maybe even debates may ensue.  These are generally not facilitated, but will have a moderator to take notes.

Regional Meetings – all meeting attendees are encouraged to attend the regional meetings which will be moderated by members of the AOA Board of Directors.  The idea is to share information about trends, governmental or regulatory issues, and connect with one another.

Fishbowl Conversations – these 20-minute sessions will take place in the Exhibit hall during the lunch time break.  These are sessions that will be marketing focused or provide insight to the AOA database profile.  A small group will talk about trends, future sessions, and technologies.  These are casual and quick! 

The Grand Sierra Resort is our host hotel. Reservations.

Registration will open in the summer of 2017. Take a look at the great list of exhibitors we have lined up for you! EXHIBITORS 2017.
