LMCC17 On-Site Activities

LMCC17 Team Has Fun On-Site Activities Planned Including Return of Swag Swap

We’re so excited that it’s less than 45 days (wow!) until LMCC17, where library marketing colleagues gather to share marketing success stories, learn new techniques, and connect with colleagues. Our local arrangements team has been working on fun on-site activities for 2017 to help you make the most of your conference experience outside of our fabulous sessions.

Dine-Arounds for Networking and Fun!

Due to popular demand, the team has put together Dine-Around opportunities for both Wednesday Nov. 15 (when many folks are arriving and would like new friends to eat with) and Thursday Nov. 16. They’ve selected a wide range of local restaurants within easy and short walking distance of our hotels. The team is also working on creating online sign-ups to make it easier to see your dining options and sign up for a slot. Watch our activities page for details and more info.

LMCC networking lunch table topics regions

Our two networking lunches will also feature popular table topics to make it easier to connect and chat with your colleagues. Find a table with a hot topic that interests you one day (or the popular “I don’t feel like talking” tables!) and a regional table to find your nearby colleagues the next day.

PLUS …  after requests for more time, more space, and more swag – the marketing materials Swag Swap returns bigger and better this year!

Good News—More Time and Space!

Last year’s LMCC attendees loved this event so much, they asked for it to be bigger, better, and longer. In this year’s new hotel space, we can do that! Once the materials are set up (midday Thursday), we’ll be able to leave them out until the conference ends. So you’ll have plenty of time to browse, chat, and pick up materials that inspire you. Take home as many as you like!

The LMCC Swag Swap will be an informal event where conference attendees can share their own promotional materials, see what colleagues have created, and take home samples for inspiration and ideas.
