Small Group Dinners
Philadelphia has been ranked as a top food city in America. Rumor has it that many NYC restaurateurs first try their hands at the Philadelphia market before making their way to the big city. We invite you to join us on a culinary tour of our great city while meeting other conference attendees. Early bird registrants will be contacted over email regarding the coordination of small group dinners.
We will be hosting an invite-only reception at the Loews hotel for our distinguished speakers and sponsors. This event will also be attended by select Wharton faculty affording our VIPs the opportunity to connect with some of the world’s leading academic minds.
Late Night Mixer
For those attendees unable to make it into Philly in time for the small group dinners, have no fear, we have you covered. Join us for a late night social on Friday at 1925 Lounge (more details on our Schedule page).
The conference will feature a networking lunch for attendees and provide an opportunity for select attendees to sit with speakers of interest for the duration
The Gala this year will be held at the majestic Regent’s ballroom of Loews hotel and will feature:
- One-hour open bar cocktail reception before the seated dinner
- African-inspired cuisine
- A dessert bar to allow for additional networking between guests during dinner
Remember that the dress code is black-tie so come dressed to impress!
The afterparty will feature outstanding DJs, the opening performer, Ayoinmotion and our musical guest Wande Coal.
