Mingle Zone

Other helpful aspects at the Summer Meeting are the Mingle Zone and the Learning Lounge. The Mingle Zone is located near the entrance of America’s Hall II, and gives attendees space to relax, meet with colleagues, charge devices, and catch up on emails.

Learning Lounge

If you prefer to take sessions in a more open atmosphere, then the Learning Lounge is for you. Located by the Grand Ballroom Foyer, the Lounge is a place to watch popular educational sessions in an open atmosphere. Content will be transmitted in real-time from selected sessions taking place all around the hotel.  Not all sessions will be shown in their entirety and may be subject to change.
