Opening Event
Join us at the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park, Hotel for an opening reception to kick off the IPDLN Conference. Mingle with other conference delegates over drinks and hors d’oeuvres after a day of pre-conference workshops. Listen to inspiring speakers who will lay the foundation for the conference and give a preview of what’s to come in the days ahead. Free of charge.
Closing Event
You’ve shared, learned, discussed, and made new connections. Now that the main conference program is over, it’s time to party. Join us at the Hard Rock Cafe Chicago for an evening of eating, drinking, and dancing. The $50 admission fee includes appetizers, drink tickets, and music at an iconic venue in the heart of Chicago.
Register for both events on the main conference registration page.
