OMTEC Receptions and Networking Events

OMTEC’s participants are performance-focused and “get-the-right-things-done”-minded professionals, so you can be confident that sharing a meal, a laugh or a moment with any attendee at one of the following events is likely to advance your directive, whatever it might be.

Welcome Reception

5:30 pm - 7:00 pm | Tuesday | Joe's Live Rosemont

This popular event begins after the day’s education has concluded and most exhibitors are done setting up their booths. Connect with peers, partners and friends over light fare and drinks. Joe’s Live Rosemont is within walking distance of the hotels and convention center.

Networking Lunch

12:00 pm - 2:00 pm | Wednesday | Exhibit Hall and Cafe

These two hours are yours to use as you wish. We recommend visiting the Exhibit Hall to identify your next new partner. Or, attend one of the In-Booth Presentations. Don’t forget to recharge with lunch fare and drinks from the Exhibit Hall Cafe. 

Exhibit Floor Open House and Happy Hour

4:00 pm - 5:30 pm | Wednesday | Exhibit Floor

These two hours are solely dedicated to mingling and networking with all of OMTEC’s participants…with a special focus on the ~170 exhibitors. Delicious appetizers and drinks will be served — this popular gathering is not to be missed!

Pancake Breakfast

Kick off Day 2 of OMTEC with a hot pancake breakfast in the Exhibit Hall Cafe. Catch up with friends, meet new partners or schedule your business meetings.

Burgers and Beers

Everyone is invited to solidify their connections and make a few new ones at this spirited conference finale! Visit that booth you’ve been meaning to get to, track down that presenter to ask those pressing questions or share some laughs with friends and partners.
