Networking at conferences is to interact with other people to exchange information and develop contacts, especially to further one's career. Networking leads to new business opportunities and new relationships. It's a paramount to your career and business. More information to follow.

Welcome and Networking Reception

Monday, Sept. 20 | 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Exhibit Hall – Azalea Room Annex

Finally! After nearly two years of meeting via Zoom, Webex, GoToMeeting, even 1990s style teleconferencing and 1950s style phone calls, you get to bump elbows, shake hands, do high-fives – whatever is appropriate for your comfort level – you get to interact with with REAL, LIVE PEOPLE face to face.

Conference-goers almost always cite networking as one of the prime benefits of sojourning to a conference.

So sip a cocktail, nurse a soda, and converse with the Legends of Lean, the Dynamists of Data Science and the most Sensational Six Sigma practitioners of the realm. Celebrate successes, commiserate over plans gone awry, and help build a network that you can “Lean” on when things get sticky in the future.

Dutch Treat Dinner

Tuesday, Sept. 21 | 6 – 8 p.m.

The term “Dutch treat” indicates that each person in a group activity pays for themselves, rather than any person paying for anyone else, particularly in a restaurant bill.

Members of the conference committee look forward to welcoming you, along with your colleagues new and old, for an evening of networking, dinner and exploring Buckhead, the heart of Atlanta’s nightlife. This is a chance to deepen those new acquaintances into lifelong colleagues.

Don’t miss this opportunity!

Select restaurants, within walking distance of the hotel, have been recommended for our group. There will be a sign-up list near the conference registration desk.
