Networking Opportunities

Connection is important, which is why ISPOR is striving to make the most out of in-person AND virtual networking for ISPOR 2022. For ISPOR 2022, we have brought back in-person networking favorites, created a few NEW in-person educational sessions with a social twist, AND we have a new virtual conference platform with enhanced networking capabilities that our in-person attendees will also have access to. We are innovating connection making and combining the best of the in-person and virtual experiences.

In-Person Networking

The following in-person networking opportunities will be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.

Education with a Social Twist

Forums
Monday, May 16 – Wednesday, May 18
Let’s discuss! Many of our forums include conversations facilitated by ISPOR member groups that focus on addressing a set of specific questions pertaining to scientific research and initiatives, regional health policy, and best research practices. These live, face-to-face discussions are intended to be highly interactive and collaborative and promote the exchange of ideas in a peer-to-peer setting. For detailed information about these networking sessions, please visit the conference program.

Discussion Groups  
Monday, May 16 – Tuesday, May 17 | Prince George Exhibit Hall
New this year, the ISPOR 2022 conference schedule will include a series of 60-minute group discussions that are inspired by sessions within the ISPOR 2022 program. This set of discussions will take place in the new Discussion Lounge located within the Exhibit Hall. Many of the discussions will include the session moderator and speakers. Group discussions are open to all conference attendees and are intended to be highly interactive, collaborative, and promote the exchange of ideas in a peer-to-peer setting. This is an opportunity to continue the conversation and make meaningful connections with other attendees. The schedule of Group Discussions will be released in April.
