Networking Parties
at The 2011 Screenwriting Expo, Sept. 15-18, 2011, Westin Los Angeles Airport
 

“Entertainment is a business that runs on 
personal relationships.  Pure and simple.”

 
Three receptions offer registrants great opportunities to meet, socialize, find a serious conversation about screenwriting, stop being so serious, pitch your scripts to each other and check the reactions.  We don't promise romance or a celebrity-sighting, but both happen.  (Last year, Shane Black stayed through an entire reception and then invited a group of writers to his home. We don't promise anything like that; what happens happens.  We do invite all speakers to the receptions.)

At each reception. we'll serve hors d'ouvres.  Beverages are cash bar.  The Saturday night reception will include music and a space for dancing.  More details on all three receptions will be posted below as we make the arrangements.
