Forget Facebook. That's nothing compared with face time, in person, at the TGA Opening Night Party, the most important networking event in the industry. Circulate, make introductions, socialize and network without the pressure and distraction that comes with being on the Show floor.
This year is an extra-special event, marking the 75th anniversary of TGA's founding, and we're going to celebrate with all the pomp and circumstance appropriate to the Association's diamond jubilee.
The Opening Night Party will be held in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center's main foyer, just outside our exhibit hall entrance, where we'll have music, food, libations and the company of the best people in the industry.
So, join us for what's sure to be a terrific time, and a fabulous networking event.
