NGS Exhibit Booth Events -- Don't Miss Out! #NGS2016GEN


It’s almost here!  The NGS 2016 Family History Conference starts Wednesday (on-site registration starts Tuesday).

Besides the workshops, lectures, luncheons, banquet, and more, don’t forget to check out the Exhibit Hall.

There are many events scheduled by various vendors and the NGS Exhibit Hall booth will be quite busy!

In fact, you can meet me!  On Wednesday, 4 May 2016, 3-4 p.m. there is a “Meet and Greet” scheduled with me.  Please stop by the NGS booth.  Tell me what you like or don’t like about Upfront with NGS, offer some suggestions, or just stop by and say “Hi.” 

Can't make it to the booth, just "Friend" me via the conference mobile app.  I am listed as Diane L. Richard

Here is a full list of NGS Exhibit Hall booth events (the schedule is as we go to press and do check the posted schedule in the exhibit hall in case of last minute changes) ...
