Student and Emerging Professional Lunch
Calling all students and emerging professionals! The Student and Emerging Professional Committee invites you to learn more about new opportunities to become involved in ISSTD and network with distinguished ISSTD members. ISSTD Luminaries will share their experiences in the industry and answer your questions. Lunch will be provided, RSVP required.

President’s Reception
Enjoy networking with your fellow conference participants at the President’s Reception (one drink ticket included in multi-day registrations). Following the reception, head out on the town and enjoy everything NYC has to offer, including tickets to a Broadway Show (available for an additional fee as part of registration)!

Broadway Show
Join conference attendees as we go see Come From Away. Come From Away is based on the true story of when the isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small town turned in to an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander’s air strip on September 11, 2001. Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we’re all part of a global family. Limited number of tickets available. Additional registration fee applies.
