Conference Evening at Max's Wine Dive: Cocktails at 7pm; dinner at 8pm and dancing from 9:30 to 11pm.
Cocktails, dinner, wine with dinner, ambiance...yes, it's all included in the Conference Evening event, and topped off with great camaraderie! There's one more element of the evening: Entertainment is being provided by area favorite Paul Victor Project. Austin musicians Paul Victor. (Guitars and Vocals), Doug Laymon. (Bass) and Michael Shepherd (Drums) have been giving audiences knockout performances and keeping listeners grooving and dancing with infectious Soul, R&B, Rock and Fusion influences. And, if you check the roster of SAGEEP 2015 local organizers, you'll see that Doug Laymon is "one of our own." Attire: Western Chic!

Remember that SAGEEP immediately follows SXSW, a major music, film, and interactive festival with strong international appeal. We have set aside some rooms at the conference hotel (Sheraton at the Capitol, www.eegs.org/hotel-venue) beginning the Wednesday before SAGEEP (March 18th) for those who wish to come a few days early and catch a little SXSW (go to sxsw.com/schedule for a listing of events). Please make your hotel reservations early!
