* – Based on your feedback, we are going to do an opening cocktail party on Sunday evening instead of a closing cocktail on Tuesday. This achieves two things – it allows us to kick off with a fun event for everyone on Sunday evening, and it also allows people to leave right at the end of the meetings to catch their flights home without feeling like they are missing something fun.
