  • The exhibit hall (Northern Hemisphere A-D, across from registration) opens at 3:30pm on Wednesday.  Join us for a networking break at that time, then return for the Welcome Reception immediately following the Keynote Address.  Don't forget the little green ticket you received at check-in.  It is good for a free drink at the reception!
  • While you are in the exhibit hall, be sure to stop by our Social Networking Center and Email Lab.  Use hashtag #aln13 in social media and follow us in Twitter @sloanc_aln for updates during the conference.  Come to the Social Networking Center for assistance from one of our social networking evangelists.

  • ProctorU is conducting an open focus group meeting Wednesday at 2:15pm in the Sponsor Meeting Room in the Convention Foyer (by the hotel lobby).  All interested parties are invited to join this meeting.  Please look for the Sloan-C staff member with the directional sign at the bottom of the escalator by the lobby.  We hope to see you there!
