CELUG/EDAC Evening Networking Event at DAC 2016

Published by:


All aboard!  On Wednesday after the conference, we will board busses to take us to the shores of Lady Bird Lake where we will board The Lone Star Riverboat to take a cruise around Austin.  The ship offers a covered lower deck with air conditioning and an uncovered upper deck for viewing the famous Austin bats on the Congress Street Bridge.

This is a great opportunity for you to network with the conference goers and go into more depth on topics you heard about during the day.  The open atmosphere lets you engage many different people in an intimate atmosphere, without being stuck in the same seat all night as in a traditional sit-down dinner.

All attendees are invited.  Dinner will be Texas Barbecue (brisket, chicken and sausage).  Vegetarian options will be available.  Beer and wine will be served.
