Networking Opportunities at the PHT Meeting

  • 1.  Networking Opportunities at the PHT Meeting

    We are looking forward to seeing you this coming weekend, October 9-11, 2022, for the 35th Anniversary PHT Meeting!


    Networking opportunities always appear high on PHT members' wish lists. With that in mind, the upcoming PHT Meeting agenda was designed to provide multiple scenarios to do just that. Here are some of them:

    If you are arriving on Saturday, October 8, and have no plans for dinner, feel free to join others at a pay-your-own-way meal at 7:00 pm at the City Tap House Logan Square, a 5-minute walk from the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown. (RSPV to Karen Mirabile by Thursday, October 6.)

    One feature of the PHT Meetings is that attendees and vendors take their meals daily together in the exhibit hall, where you can meet up with colleagues you already know, but also end up at a table full of new people to meet.  The first meal is the Sunday night dinner that kicks off the vendor exhibits.

    In a nod to getting reacquainted after not meeting in person for a couple of years, there is a breakout session scheduled on Monday where attendees in small groups will be encouraged to share a recent success from their information center, or just give an overview of their work, a chance to learn from each other.

    The Monday Night Event at the Franklin Institute will be a casual forum to talk to fellow attendees. And you can touch base with another kind of network -- a two-story tall neural network -- in The Brain exhibit, which happens to be underwritten by one of our attendee's company, Teva Pharmaceuticals.

    And there will be ample time to connect all three days with the individuals who staff the vendor booths.


    By now, you're aware that this is the 35th time that PHT has staged an annual meeting. That achievement will be marked throughout the conference, starting with cake at the Sunday evening Exhibits Kick-off (after dinner and drinks of course).

    Speaking of vendors, remember to visit each booth to complete the Vendor Passport game (found in your on-site registration package) with trivia questions based on the 35 PHT Meetings.

    On Tuesday, SLA President Catherine Lavallée-Welch will appear virtually to open the day with remarks about this notable PHT Meeting.

    Did you know that 2022 also marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Pharma Division in 1947? On Tuesday, there's a session on "PHT: Past, Present, Future" in which you can discover some of the Community's history.
