MAPAM 2018

We are looking forward to hosting you for the third MAPAM November 8-10, 2018. To be held in downtown Lancaster, this year’s conference will again carry our signature format to allow for a relaxed, conversational, and productive three days. With showcases hosted in the beautiful Ware Center, MAPAM is filled with significant time for networking, socializing, brainstorming, and project development.

Registration is now open, including Marketplace Table reservations. Please remember that you must be a member of PA Presenters to attend MAPAM. If your membership has lapsed, just renew when registering for MAPAM.

Both conference hotels, the Marriott at Penn Square and Hotel Lancaster, are both just a short walk from the Ware Center. Check out more about the hotels, including information on making your reservations now.
