Grand Opening of Exhibit Floor and Symposium Party

Let’s celebrate 35 years of the Symposium during our grand opening of the exhibit floor and the Symposium Party. Drinks and appetizers will be offered in a fun, lively setting. This is a great way to network and engage with fellow attendees, exhibitors, and the entire HFSE community and end your first day of the Symposium! 

Our special raffle will take place during the Symposium Party.  Attendees can buy raffle tickets for the chance to win a variety of prizes ranging from Amazon Gift Cards to Kate Spade bags to Apple Products to Sports Tickets. 

In 2022, the HFSE charity is Algalita. Algalita started with an eye-opening discovery in the North Pacific.  When Founder Captain Charles Moore discovered a massive area of plastic soup floating in the Pacific Ocean, the question wasn’t how it got there – it was how our consumption habits had spiraled so out of control.

Our mission is not to pick trash out of the sea. It’s to fundamentally shift our way of thinking on land. We empower young people to think critically, demand action and be agents for change. When we educate, the next generation responds with solutions. They get behind a cause that has wide-ranging impact, and they support it with fervor.
