2. Friday fun day: Spend time with hundreds of your colleagues in our new expo showcase as you check out all the services and suppliers, not to mention the endless entertainment available at the MGM National Harbor! If you make it a “staycation,” we won’t blame you. 

3. Represent: Develop your reputation as the expert and invest in your own career this year. You never know – next year you could lead a breakout session!
