CES 2021 – Social and Well-being Program

We know that social events are an important part of any CES conference. One of the challenges of moving to an online conference is creating virtual social events that people will enjoy after a long day of already being online. Recognizing the diversity of our evaluation community, the C2021 Social Committee is offering a suite of social events that will be held concurrently the evening of Wednesday, May 12 between 6-8 p.m. As part of the C2021 registration process, attendees are asked to indicate their interest in each of the possible social events. Based on the demand, we will determine the final list of events and costing which will then be shared with delegates for registration. Due to the concurrent offering of our social events, attendees will only be able to participate in one of the social events offered that evening. We have a hunch that you will have fun whichever one you choose!
