IAMCP SpeakEasy Networking:

Sunday, July 10, 2016, 8:30 – 11pm

IAMCP's Sunday Social Event is back, but we’re going incognito this year with our partners and friends! This is a speakeasy–styled networking event, with light fare, drinks and awesome entertainment walking distance from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

The location is a secret that will be teased socially on Twitter (follow @IAMCPUS) until the doors open.

Entry requires a VIP pass or door entry code, which will be provided socially at set times leading up to the event and 200 passes will be handed out at the IAMCP Lounge only during the WPC Welcome Reception at 5:30pm and 6:30pm sharp.
