While we love that Workplace Summit is big enough to classified as a top-tier conference, that also means our high profile can attract fraudulent activity. It is important that hotel rooms are only booked through our official Workplace Summit website: 2014 Out & Equal Workplace Summit.

    What time does the awards dinner start this year, and what events are being held prior to it?

    Thanks.

    Roma

    • outandequal says:

      Hi Roma! Thank you for your question. The Gala Dinner starts at 7pm on Thursday November 6. The Gala Reception starts at 5:30pm and so there is 2 hours after the final workshop session that day and the start of the Reception.
