 ABPM 2019 Spring Conference
Tuesday, April 16th Logistics
We hope you had a fantastic first day of the 2019 ABPM Spring Conference!

Breakfast, sponsored by BriefingEdge, will be served in the Presidential Ballroom (2nd Floor) from 7:30-8:30 am.  
Breakout Sessions will begin at 8:30 am. You can find a hotel map and list of sessions with full session descriptions, times and rooms via your MyABPMapp and
in your conference agenda We do our best to provide enough seating, however sessions are first come-first served so if you have high interest in one or more sessions, we recommend you arrive early to make sure you get a seat. Attending with a team? Divide and conquer to cover as many topics as possible! As a reminder, we recommend layered clothing for your comfort. Breaks will be at 10:00 am and 2:30 pm in the Upper Lobby near Congressional, Senate, and Federal A and B.

New Breakout Session Format: Because of your feedback, session formats are evolving this year! With so many great breakout session topics in each time slot, we often hear from conference participants that it’s difficult to choose which one to attend. To give you a chance to get even more out of the conference, we are introducing a “Flash” session for each breakout. The sessions will be divided into 2 segments: the first 60 minutes will be the Primary session for content and collaboration followed by 10 minutes to switch rooms, and then a second 20 minute “flash” session.

  • Primary Session:  The first 60 minutes will be a conversation between session leaders and the participants. Session leaders will provide a short presentation to set the context and share their knowledge on the topic. This will get the conversation going and the session leader will facilitate a conversation among participants for the remainder of the 60 minutes. This approach uses as its model the increasingly collaborative formats we are seeing in today’s briefing programs.

  • Flash Session:  After the first 60 minutes, session leaders will remain in their rooms while conference participants have 10 minutes to move to another breakout room for a “flash session” on any of the other sessions offered during that time slot. In this 20 minute segment, session leaders will provide high-level talking points as well as relevant points from the collaborative portion of the 60-minute segment

Lunch will be served from noon to 1pm in the Presidential Ballroom, 2nd floor.
