2020 Midyear Meeting Dine-arounds

2020 NABE Midyear Meeting Early Arrivals Dine-arounds

Arriving at the 2020 Midyear Meeting on Tuesday, February 11, 2020? There is a great new networking opportunity which will help you make some connections after the Tuesday Welcome Reception and before programming begins on Wednesday – the Early Arrivals Dine-arounds! Hosted by NABE leaders, the Early Arrivals Dine-arounds are a chance to go out to dinner at some unique Austin restaurants. Each dinner is Dutch-treat/pay-for-your-own-meal. Dine-around hosts will be your guide for the night and will help shepherd you to the restaurant and back to the Hilton. Select from seven different restaurant options.

Dine-around sign up is first-come, first-served (once seats fill, sign-up for that restaurant option will close). To sign up, review the choices below and click the corresponding link to complete a short form. You will receive additional information from the Dine-around host(s) like where to meet your group, etc. closer to the 2020 Midyear Meeting.

The deadline to sign-up for all Dine-arounds is January 31, 2020.
