Our Project Management Symposium offers you a variety of ways to network and engage other project managers facing similar issues as you. Conversations can happen in speaker sessions, in the halls traveling from one session to another, during lunch or refreshment breaks, and most especially during our networking reception that takes place Thursday from 5:30 – 7:00 PM. It’s better to network than to sit in traffic during rush hour!
