January 10 - 14, 2016 • Memphis, Tennessee, USA
Monday evening's Welcome Reception, featuring a full buffet dinner and cash bar, will begin at 6:00pm in Ballroom A on the Ballroom Level of the Memphis Cook Convention Center.
Some attendees may have brought families. Please remember that the dinner and refreshments during the meeting are for registered attendees and registered companions only. The Companions' Breakfast on Monday and Tuesday is for registered companions only. In order to ensure our catering arrangements, we will be enforcing strictly the need for all attendees at the Monday evening dinner to wear their registration badges. For this meeting, a staff member will be available until 7:00 pm to hand out registration badges to pre-registered guests, who arrive just before or during the reception.
Due to the multi-level nature of the meeting space, there will be two break locations – on the Mezzanine Level of the Memphis Cook Convention Center and the Conference Level of the Sheraton Memphis Downtown.
Also, we ask companions to be sure to wear their registration badges at the Companions' Breakfast in Rooms L8 and L9 at the Memphis Cook Convention Center on Monday and Tuesday mornings, 8:00 - 10:00am (please note that this is a change to the schedule of past years). This helps to ensure that our catering arrangements are appropriate. The registration desk will be open at 7:30 am on Tuesday for badges to be available to those arriving too late on Monday to register.
