Conference Happy Hour

Thursday, March 22
4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Union Station Brewery

After you've wrapped up your last conference session for the day, reward yourself by making your way to Union Station Brewery just a short walk from the convention center. Union Station Brewery, a former train station turned brewery, is a gem in the heart of downtown Providence where they brew their own crafts beers on-site.

You'll have a chance to mingle with the same faces you saw throughout the day in your conference rooms.

Free for all conference attendees. And best of all, your first drink is on us, while supplies last. You deserve it.
