Are you wondering, “What time does the Miami AAN Convention start?”
The 2013 AAN Convention starts today at the InterContinental Hotel in Miami, kicking off two-and-a-half days packed with sessions, parties, and networking events that are guaranteed to knock your flip-flops off.
Registration starts at 11 a.m. in the Bayfront Foyer, where you can pick up your badge and bag of convention goodies. This is also where you can purchase tickets to the optional events, such as the Free Speech lunch featuring Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell.
Directly across from the registration desk is the exhibit hall, where you can find all of the fantastic sponsors and exhibitors who have helped make this year’s convention possible. These companies offer innovative, unique services that many of you will find valuable.
Sessions start at 1:30 p.m. with an afternoon slate of programming including a deep dive into mobile media, an all-star social media panel, a national advertising workshop, and some hot live legal action with AAN attorney Kevin Goldberg.
Evening festivities kick off at 5:45 p.m. with the VirgAANs and VeterAANs Reception, which gives AAN conference virgins a chance to meet and mingle with conference veterans and board members.
As you’re enjoying your cocktail and gazing across the Biscayne Bay at tonight’s welcome reception, please take a moment to thank our sponsors Foundation, Layar, MediaTrax, Publish88, VendAsta, Cont3nt, Marketwired, Pre1, Search Influence, and Town News.
