#PLUS2018 Reception and Looking Forward to Tomorrow

This was a wonderful conclusion to the first day of what promises to be another stellar PLUS Conference.

The opening reception was lovely. Attendees mingled alongside the Manchester Grand Hyatt’s pool, enjoying food, drink, and conversation with their fellow professionals. Tomorrow is a full line-up of education sessions, Spark sessions, and a lunchtime keynote address, as well as the Connections Lounge for networking and the Tech Bar for all your technology questions.

Wake up early tomorrow to take part in yoga in the Grassy Backyard on the 4th floor, or stop by the Tech Bar for a TechBytes session on “The Top Ten Must-Have Apps for Busy Professionals.” If you need a caffeine boost in morning, stop by the PLUS Café and get wonderful latte art with your morning pick-me-up. See you tomorrow!

#PLUS2018 Gets Underway

The 2018 PLUS Conference is off to a great start. John Kerry’s opening keynote address was eloquent and insightful, beginning the conference on a high note.

Tomorrow’s schedule is full of education sessions on a variety of critical and interesting topics, a Woman’s Leadership Network Luncheon keynote address from combat pilot Vernice Armour, and ample opportunities for networking with colleagues from across the industry. Be sure to check out the various amenities provided at this year’s conference, including shoe shines, professional head shots, and the PLUS Café.

But today isn’t over yet—this first day of conference will conclude with the opening night reception, beginning at 5:30 this evening on the fourth floor, poolside. It is going to be a great evening and we look forward to seeing you there!
