Thursday, 5PM Networking Get-Together
Holiday Inn by the Bay, Portland, Maine

The Thursday early evening get-together is a casual, small gathering at the Inn by the Bay and is open to any Summit or Pre-Summit registrant.

It starts around 5pm, though any time you can get there is fine. Since some Speakers/Presenters arrive early for the Summit, it is also a good opportunity to chat with them, as well as other participants. It is a cash bar, but plentiful and filling appetizers/hors-d’oeuvres will be provided.
