The 2020 AIChE Virtual Spring Meeting & 16th Global Congress on Process Safety may have moved online, but there are still many ways to successfully network both professionally and socially.
Exclusive networking events and opportunities will be held throughout the week of the meeting. Continue to explore meeting topics, make new contacts, and have some fun while connecting with your colleagues through live sessions, chats, and other opportunities.
Some of the technically driven networking events include a meet and greet with exhibitors, networking hours with several of the AIChE divisions, including the Fuels & Petrochemicals Division and the Management Division, along with the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS), and the RAPID Manufacturing Institute, to name a few.
Fun-focused networking events include happy hours (and a yappy hour featuring our furry or feathery friends!), coffee talks, and more.
There’s also a Scavenger Hunt that you can join within the conference platform for a chance to be one of five lucky winners who win prizes.
