2016 Conference Schedule

The 5-day event features multiple professional development sessions, visiting with our exhibiting partners, media previews, lunches, and receptions--each a new opportunity for networking and information sharing. 

Exhibitor Suites are on floors 33-37 of the Embassy Suites; the floor plan  for the exhibitor suites is below.

The Grand (meeting space) is connected to Embassy Suites by a skywalk from the 5th floor of the hotel. The skywalk takes you to the 2nd floor of the Grand, just by the elevators; most NMM events will be on the 5th floor. The Grand also has a street entrance onto Charles Street which will be open during our event. This will be closer than going back to the hotel entrance for people who want to get outside for some fresh air.
