Space is limited, so prepayment is required to reserve your space.

What’s on your mind for 2009? We’ve assembled four hot topics for discussion at our upcoming business lunch. How does it work? Four tables, Four topics. You choose the one that’s on your mind. Each of our skilled moderators will help guide the table through the discussions, as well as offer insight from their experience as well. You’ll be sure to learn from your moderators, as well as your fellow designers. It’s the best of both worlds!

Attending this roundtable lunch is easy. Register now online, and when you arrive at the lunch on Friday the 20th, you can sign up for the table topic you wish to discuss. First come, first choice, so be on time! We’ll still have some socializing time before the discussions, so you’ll get a chance to talk to everyone regardless. See you there.
