4. ‘But Won’t I Miss the Madness?’
No! Lucky for you, attending ISA doesn’t have to mean missing out on March Madness, the hoops extravaganza that is the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship. Have your brackets ready and track your progress in the new Basketball and Social Media Lounge, which features a 103-inch TV. Drop in and check out the latest scores, log in at the cyber café, and follow what everyone is saying about ISA events on the official Twitter wall. Relax, recharge, and enjoy a drink from the cash bar all while staying connected online. Lounge hours: Thursday and Friday 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday: 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

5. Networking Opps
Put a face to all those e-mail addresses and phone voices by connecting with industry professionals face-to-face through one of several ISA networking events. “With the industry’s top professionals gathered in one place, it’s only natural that business relationships are formed and solidified. Networking happens in formal settings, such as the Global Sign Forum and the Golf Tournament, and informally, such as events hosted by manufacturers,” says Anderson.

Hosted by ISA’s international committee, the Global Sign Forum and Reception welcomes industry leaders from more than 30 countries to exchange ideas, discuss issues, and develop international business relations. Sign up early because seating is limited. The Forum takes place Friday, March 23: 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

The Custom and National Sign Company Meeting & Networking Event invites sign and graphic executives to mingle with representatives from major sign companies to answer questions regarding installation needs. Your ISA Expo badge is all you need to attend the event and a cash bar will be available. The event happens Friday, March 23: 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
