Networking Lunches 

Meet colleagues interested in the same marketing topics or from your geographic region! Thursday’s lunch will feature table topics as conversation starters (some topics will be featured on more than one table); and Friday will be by geographic regions of North America plus a table for our international guests.

Table topics feature a variety of popular library marketing topics – some by popular request – including, but not limited to:

YouTube / Video Creation, Social Media Analytics, Marketing Plans, Hiring Students/Interns for marketing, Infographics, Library Signage, Communicating with Board Members, Communicating with Community Members, Fighting for Funding, Branding, Graphic Design, Marketing Fails, How to Say No to Marketing Requests, Controversial Library Displays, What If No One Shows Up, Best Promotional Items, Facebook & Twitter, and the ever popular, “I Don’t Feel Like Talking”. 

Dine-Arounds Will Be Available!

There will be social events and dinners at the many local restaurants within walking distance of the InterContinental hotel.

Individuals or groups will be able to sign-up for a variety of local restaurants who are expecting us. Our on-site arrangements team has made reservations at a variety of local places convenient to our hotels. You choose from options below, use the online sign up, meet up, and enjoy a night out with new friends! Each attendee asks for their own check, and pays for their own dinner separately.  Conference attendees participating in dine-arounds will meet in two blocks of time to depart together to their choice of restaurant. Feel free to also organize your own group if another option doesn’t suit!

See our list of Dine-Around options below for both Wednesday, Nov. 15 and Thursday, Nov. 16. The on-site activities team has created SignUp Genius links for online registering to join a group for dinner.  Check below for the link for each day; more locations may be added.
