Participate in our 20+ sessions to maximize your networking experience

The best part of any conference? Networking with your peers!

Networking OpportuntiesSharing ideas and information. Toasting past accomplishments and new opportunities. Celebrating that this conference is all about you – and your chance to connect with each other.

Some of the opportunities you will have at the 2014 GMAC Annual Conference include:

Receptions and Happy Hour

Reception might be a misnomer for our Thursday night event – our mouth-watering fare is surely a meal in itself. And our Friday night Happy Hour is the perfect time to relax, toast a day filled with ideas and opportunities, and meet up with friends before a night out on your own.

Opportunity Zone & Research Lounge

This is the ideal opportunity for you to connect…with GMAC, with each other, and literally – there will be cell phone charging stations. Take advantage of “old-school” message boards and take some time out to talk with GMAC staff about how our products, services and research can help you do the business of b-school better.

Concurrent Sessions

Yes, there will be opportunity for you to learn from the expert presenters and panelists in the front of the room, but concurrent sessions are also the perfect time for you to learn from and with each other.


Breakfast, lunches, refreshment breaks….take advantage of these time frames to nourish your body and your mind!

Admissions Symposium

This special, pre-conference symposium is designed for director-level admissions staff from our GMAC member schools. Opportunities to connect abound – from the pre-event reception to peer-facilitated discussions, from large-group workshops to small group interactions, from dinner to breakfast to lunch and beyond. Please note: there is a separate registration fee for this pre-conference event.
