Awards Program

The Friday Closing is a new initiative for 2018. This brief but important ceremony gives delegates an opportunity to see who the winners were for various awards, including best presentation. The perfect end to the IPEIA week, while still allowing lots of time to head back home (or the office).

The presentation awards will be for the following categories:

  • Top 3 Presentations
  • Upcoming Speaker
  • First Abstract Submission (on time)
  • An additional draw will be for utilization of the conference app. This conference app draw will be awarded to a delegate that utilized the app during the conference and who is present at the closing ceremony.
