Guess Who's Coming For Dinner?

Sign up for a networking dinner when you register for the conference. We’ll send you a list of restaurants to choose from, and you’ll be assigned to a reserved table at the restaurant of your choice. This is an excellent opportunity to meet other conference attendees.

The networking dinners will take place on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm (the night before the conference begins). Meal costs are not included in the conference registration fee.

Exhibit Hall

During the breaks between sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to wander through our exhibit hall. This is a great opportunity to talk to vendors and find solutions for your ministry on everything from donor management software to insurance.

Check the conference program for "Product Demos"— short presentations in which vendors showcase their products and services.

Movie Night

You're invited to help Plan to Protect® celebrate their 10th anniversary by attending a light reception and movie screening on Wednesday, May 3 from 7 pm to 9 pm.

The featured movie is Over 18, a documentary about pornography that follows the true story of a boy who became addicted to pornography at the age of nine while playing on his computer in his family's living room. The film has several interviews with experts from around the world as well as people who are still active in the porn industry today.

Art Exhibit

Enjoy an art exhibit in the foyer outside of the breakout rooms on Thursday, May 4 from 12:15 pm to 6:45 pm. The following artists will be showcased:

There will be an opportunity to meet the artists and even purchase some of the artwork to display at your ministry or in your own home.


Take a break from your learning on Thursday evening and enjoy a nice meal in a relaxed environment with your new friends. Entertainment will be provided by Christian comedian Leland Klassen. This event is included with your conference registration.
