IPAY

Showcase 2015 General Schedule


Each day at IPAY Showcase 2015 will be packed with performances, professional development, networking, exhibition hall, and more. To get the most out of Showcase, plan to arrive on Tuesday, January 20 to register, network, and get a good night's rest before the official opening on Wednesday morning, January 21. If you've attended IPAY Showcase before, consider becoming an IPAY Ambassador. These helpful volunteers help guide attendees through the Showcase footprint and schedule. Find out more about the Ambassador Program.

Showcase 2015 takes place in Philadelphia's Avenue of the Arts. The DoubleTree by Hilton in Center City, Philadelphia is the official Showcase hotel and site of the Exhibit Hall. Performances, Kindling sessions, lunches, receptions, restaurants, the new Kids' Entertainment Showcase Lounge are all within walking distance of the DoubleTree.

We look forward to welcoming you to Showcase 2015 in Philadelphia.
