GEOAMERICAS 2016 NETWORKING AND SOCIAL FUNCTIONS

The technical program is without doubt a focus of the GeoAmericas Conference but sometimes we can learn just as much from networking and socializing with our peers from throughout the Americas. GeoAmericas functions will be just the right place to exchange ideas in a more casual setting.

EXHIBIT HALL OPENING COCKTAIL RECEPTION

7 – 8:30 pm | Sunday evening

Opening night of the conference and immediately following the opening lecture, the Exhibit Hall will host a 90-minute cocktail reception. Join the conference for the grand opening of the Exhibit Hall including cocktails and appetizers. This reception is a great time to start networking and learn what the exhibitors have to offer, but don’t worry … there will be another 17 hours of Exhibition time during the course of the conference.

BEACH VOLLEYBALL

5:30 – 7:00 pm | Monday evening

The younger professionals group would like to invite all to join in a beach volleyball competition held on the pristine white sand beach just steps from the Loews Hotel. All skill levels welcome; water and t-shirts will be provided. Watch for the detailed invitation and signup forms from the Young Professionals Committee!

HAVANA NIGHTS BEACH FRONT SOCIAL EVENT

6:30 – 8:30 pm | Tuesday evening

Guests are invited to attend a warm and vibrant Latin themed evening on the picturesque Americana Lawn. The location showcases temperate spring evening weather of Miami Beach with views of the Atlantic Ocean and the white sandy beach. Bring your straw fedora and socialize while enjoying Caribbean food, cocktails, cigar rollers, a steel drum band and more. The event will not be a sit-down meal but buffet style with a variety of seating options to enhance the opportunity to mingle. Along with music, entertainment and food we will take the opportunity to recognize some members of our community. The evening will finish early enough for the more energetic attendees to venture out to South Beach!
