Look for the IAM-YP Lounge in the Expo Hall!

If you have ever struggled to find a meeting space at the Annual Meeting we have great news for you! The IAM-YP Lounge will be available again this year for your convenience in the Expo Hall. Here there will be refreshments and an ample amount of tables for you to have meetings. The lounge will be located at the back of the Exhibit Hall near where all of the food will be served giving you easy access to grab a quick bite in-between meetings.


Meeting with someone that is not a YP member? Non-YPs will be allowed in the lounge only if they are accompanied by a YP member.
