2019 Annual Conference Networking Guide

2019 NFPA Annual Conference
March 5-7, 2019
Montage Laguna Beach, Laguna Beach, California

The 2019 Annual Conference schedule features many effective ways to meet people and make the right connections. (And there’s still time to register! See who you could network with here.)

Here are a few ways to make connections that even Dale Carnegie would applaud:

Check Out a Committee
The NFPA IoT Committee meets on Tuesday, March 5 at 1:00 pm and is an open meeting. Meet like-minded professionals in a smaller, interactive setting.

Don’t Miss the Welcome Reception 
Take advantage of this first opportunity for all attendees and guests to get to know each other on Tuesday evening, March 5. Enjoy refreshments, delicious appetizers and join in on a conversation.

Attend the Special Lunch Session on Wednesday
You asked for more networking and education, and this session provides both. Be sure and attend the expanded general session with Barry Lawrence to hear great insights and discussions related to profitability in distribution.

Network During One of the Tours
There are still openings for the off-site tours. These tours will allow you to network with your colleagues in a more casual environment. The Dolphin Safari on Thursday will not only allow you network, but it is a great time to enjoy the natural beauty of Laguna Beach.

Get Your Kicks on Route 66
The Route 66 themed Closing Reception on Thursday evening will be casual and fun!

Download the NFPA App
