Your Conference Experience

A truly successful conference is not just about filling your brain with as much new knowledge as you can and collecting as many business cards as possible. It's equally as important to us that you truly enjoy your time in Pittsburgh! This year will feature a fun line-up of Dine-Arounds, Be Good to Me's, and Networking Events. A Conference Mobile App will also be available, giving you the opportunity to network and organize your schedule in advance of the conference! Don't forget to check out Café Connections when you arrive to get refreshed and recharged for the conference ahead.

Want to ensure that you make valuable connections? Learn more about our mentorship program!

Help Make Winter in Pittsburgh a Little Warmer! 

Winter nights are cold in Pittsburgh, especially for the city’s homeless population. But with your generosity you can help make our host city a little warmer this year. The 2016 ADRP International Conference is proud to partner with this year’s keynote speaker and 2015 CNN Hero, Dr. Jim Withers and Operation Safety Net to help Pittsburgh’s homeless population. 

Learn more about our service project and how you can contribute to Operation Safety Net. 


We're scouring the city to find the best spots to gather and break bread together! Pre-sign ups for dine-arounds will be available in August. Stay tuned!
