About the Event

The WASDA Fall Meeting & Partnership Forum (October 23 – 25, 2023) includes committee forums, contact table appointments, and several opportunities for networking and building meaningful connections.

Distributor companies will host 15-minute appointments at their tables. Associate members will move throughout the ballroom to conduct meetings. Appointments can be double or triple booked in advance if both parties agree.
