Preconference [clear filter]
Thursday, April 4
 

9:00pm

After Hours Hang Out -- Live Jazz Show! (ADDITIONAL $40 FEE APPLIES)
  • This is a special preconference session. An additional $40 fee is required to attend. 
  • Online registration closed at 6:00 PM Central on April 2, 2019. Please visit the conference registration table on the 7th floor of the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile beginning at 10:00 AM Central on Friday, April 5, 2019 to register, add to, or change your schedule.
  • The venue would like to share this with respect to conversation levels during the show: "We are conversation friendly as long as folks do not compete with the music on stage. Musicians, as well as other patrons visiting the club, need audience respect while performing." Makes sense to us!

For the late night crew interested in a taste of Chicago, we’re headed "out on the town!"

Join your fellow conference-goers at Andy's Jazz Club (a seven-minute walk from the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel) for their 9:30pm live Jazz show! We'll gather in the hotel lobby at 9pm and walk over at 9:10pm as a group.

The $40 registration covers the entry fee and two drink minimum (Pepsi Product Sodas, Hot & Iced Tea, Regular & Decaf Coffee, House Wine By The Glass, All Beers, or Well Spirit Cocktails). You must register to attend.
