Urban Fishing Symposium Social
Tuesday Night 6:30 - 9:30 PM
This social will be a great way to meet some new people in the field of Urban Fishing and we all know that socials are a great place to spawn future research.
The Parc 55 is one of the annual meeting’s overflow hotels and is located just two blocks from the Marriot. Take the short walk, enjoy the fresh air, and join us for some fun! For those of you who are unsure on how to get to the Parc 55 on your own, Southern Division Past-President and Urban Fishing Symposium Steering Committee Member Bob Curry will be leading a group over from the Marriot's lobby at 6:15pm. A map to the Parc 55 hotel can be downloaded here.
Marketing and Promotional Table
As a part of the learning experience of the urban fishing symposium we invite you to bring some of your program's marketing and promotional items to display and giveaway. There will be a table set up at the social for these items. The purpose of this table is to generate ideas for promotional items and give participants tangible items to take home for their program to implement. Examples of items currently used by programs include temporary fish tatoos, hand towels with program logos on them, and t-shirts shrink wrapped into the shape of a channel catfish. The organizers believe that this has the potentional to directly influence the efficiency of program marketing campaigns. If you would like to participate, please contact Rick Walsh Rick.firstname.lastname@example.org or Mark Nemeth email@example.com to ensure we have enough space available for all.
