Downtown Happy Hour? You asked for it, you got it! Results from our 2014 SDBN member poll indicated that you wanted happy hours during upcoming conferences downtown. The American Association of Cancer Research’s 2014 Annual Meeting (#AACR14) will bring 18,000 researchers, professionals, and clinicians to downtown San Diego April 5-9. We’ve planned a networking happy hour a short walk from the meeting April 7th from 6:00-9:00. Meet cancer researchers and local professionals in a casual atmosphere. As always, we’ll facilitate networking so you’ll make a lot of connections. AACR registrants will get in free with their badge, and others will pay $10 for appetizers, at least one drink, and high quality networking. Spread the word to colleagues you know who will be in town at the event, it will be a great place to meet with them, and use the Twitter hashtag #AACRSDBN to Tweet about the event.
