SPSP is excited to launch a new networking opportunity at the 2018 convention: SPSP Dine-Arounds. These Dine-Arounds offer a chance to network with fellow attendees while making new friends and discussing relevant topics, all while trying some local cuisine. These split-the-check dinners will be held on Wednesday, February 28, at various times (see the link for more information. To sign up, visit the link here.
What is a Dine-Around?
A Dine-Around is a hostless dinner where attendees pay their own way. SPSP will make the reservation for you and assign you a group, but you get to pick the conversation. Dine-arounds are held at nearby restaurants (all walkable).
How many people attend a Dine-Around?
In order to provide optimal opportunities for networking, stimulating conversation, and peer learning, each Dine-Around is limited to 10 people.
How do we pay for Dine-Arounds?
When the bill arrives, each diner is responsible for his or her own check. We have arranged for separate checks with each restaurant for your convenience.
Are Dine-Arounds at expensive restaurants?
The menus vary, giving you the chance to pick what fits your budget. Be sure to check out the restaurant descriptions and menus here.
Can I sign up with a group of friends to dine together?
Each attendee signs up on his or her own. If you want to be sure to go with a colleague, each person should sign up while picking the same time/restaurant.
I have questions or need to make a change—who do I contact?
The Dine-Arounds are organized by factor110 events. Direct questions to Erin Woods, firstname.lastname@example.org.
