DINNER SEATING

To assist you in being able to sit with your friends, table seating for the AIFD Awards and Induction Gala and the Leadership Luncheon is coordinated through an assignment of seats prior to each event. Upon check-in with the AIFD Symposium Registration Desk, guests who registered for one or both of these meal functions will receive a seat assignment ticket for the event to which they have registered. Turn in your seat assignment ticket to the table-seating coordinator at the AIFD Registration Desk to be assigned your table number. If you know that you’d like to sit with certain friends or family at either event, be sure to coordinate the collection of tickets in advance. Tickets turned in together will be seated together. Tables cannot be held without tickets.
