Evening events at Gateways 2018 continue the conversation, connections, and learning.

Dinner and Games at Punch Bowl Social

On Tuesday, September 25, from 6:30 to 8:30pm, the conference is hosting a make-your-own-taco dinner for all those attending the tutorial day. This event will be held at Punch Bowl Social, a lively spot for eating and playing billiards, ping-pong, and foosball. Food and games will be available at 6:30pm in their Billiards Lounge and Holiday Lodge, but shuttles will start at 6:00pm for those who might want to relax at the bar ahead of time. This event is included in the full conference registration and is also available to attend a la carte if you are only joining part of the conference.

A shuttle bus will be available to take attendees between the conference venue, conference hotel, and Punch Bowl Social.
