Reception and Banquet

Opening Reception

Friday, June 10, 5:30–7:30 p.m. / Coast Plaza Hotel & Suites (foyer and terrace areas)
  • One complimentary ticket included in conference registration
  • $25 + GST per additional ticket (registration is now closed)

Make your experience at the 2016 conference even more memorable by socializing and networking with colleagues and friends at our opening reception. The planning committee has been hard at work to make the reception a fun party! We have special entertainers standing by to amaze and amuse you, and several opportunities to win door prizes. For a chance to be a winner, be sure to wear a favourite hat or tie (broadly defined)—one door prize ticket for each item worn, and another for the most flamboyant! Plus, we’ll have games to test your creativity.
