New Ideas for the 2007 Annual Meeting

ESA 55th Annual Meeting: Making Connections

New Ideas for the 2007 Annual Meeting

ESA debuted several new ideas in 2006 at the Annual Meeting and we plan to reprise the best of them, adding some new ventures as well that will make the 2007 meeting one that you don't want to miss. These ideas include:

  • Net Zone - our cyber cafe
    In 2006 we offered a table with 8 desktop computers set up with internet access so attendees could check their email, find plane reservations, etc. This was well received by attendees so we fully intend to offer it again.
  • Wi-fi Hotspot
    We set aside a room for wifi access throughout the 2006 Annual Meeting. Walk in with your PDA, send your emails, and walk back out again. A simple and effective way for you to stay connected to your work while you are at the Annual Meeting.
  • World of Insects calendars are back!
    We offered a free ESA Calendar to all meeting attendees in 2006 and we'll do the same again in 2007. This icon of our Society makes a great gift for friends and colleagues. You'll be able to purchase extra copies in the ESA booth on the exhibit floor.
  • Childcare!
    This is a new venture for 2007 and we couldn't be more excited about it. San Diego is a natural destination for families and we're doingwhat we can to make that easier. We'll post more details as the time draws near, but for those members and potential members who have young children at home, this is a great opportunity to turn the Annual Meeting into a family vacation.
