Dinner groups hosted by AIR members provide additional opportunities for networking and are scheduled on Tuesday, May 28th and Wednesday, May 29th. Anyone can organize a dinner group, and AIR staff will help with location suggestions and reservations. Dinner groups meet outside the Exhibit Hall, which is in the Four Seasons Ballroom. Groups can then walk together to pre-arranged locations. Dinner groups are optional, and attendees pay for their own meals at the restaurant.  

Additionally, many regional and state organizations host dinner groups after their meeting at 6:00 PM on either Wednesday, May 29th or Thursday, May 30th.
