Our annual casino night activities will be in full swing along with '80s arcade games you are sure to remember and love. And if that’s not enough, you won’t want to miss a photo opp with Tom Cruise dressed in his famous "Risky Business" attire. Prizes will be raffled off, cash and ticket bars will be open, and snacks will be provided! Come celebrate with us! After-glow party sponsored by BigHand

  ILTACON Pokémon Go

Beginning Sunday at Noon
If interested in playing Pokémon Go at ILTACON, take part in an informal Pokémon Go meetup Sunday afternoon from noon – 4:00 p.m. and Monday during breakfast, lunch and breaks. Come make new connections with other Pokémon enthusiasts and enjoy a few refreshments during breaks in the educational program.

ILTACON Pokémon Go Guidelines
This is a real-time, real-world game that ILTA doesn’t control. Our focus is on learning and networking — remember that neither ILTA nor Gaylord National can control the location of Poké-Stops, Pokémon Gyms or the location of Pokémon that could potentially appear within the conference center or exhibit hall.

All sessions are Pokémon-free zones.
As with any other game, we ask that attendees use courtesy and play during their down time. In the exhibit hall, please ensure that you and all other attendees and exhibitors are able to enjoy the exhibit hall.

Your member registration fee covers all conference meals. Guest tickets for these networking events may be purchased onsite for $50 each.
