2022 Innovation Academy: Networking, experiences, and more

2022 AAD Innovation Academy banner

At the 2022 AAD Innovation Academy, you’ll find more opportunities for attendee engagement, including a Welcome Reception, Experience Hub, networking refreshment breaks, and extended exhibit hall hours. You’ll find options for childcare as well.

Experience Hub

A place where attendees, faculty, and industry professionals can come together and have more intimate discussions. What you ask for is what you get in the Experience Hub— we’ll be crowdsourcing the topics you want to hear more about and hosting smaller presentations and conversational pods with experts in those areas.

Welcome Reception

Immediately following the keynote on Thursday, July 21 we’ll be throwing a welcome party to kick off AAD Innovation Academy! Explore the exhibit hall, mingle with colleagues, and enjoy delicious cuisine and refreshments. The AAD thanks Allakos, Inc. for its support of the Welcome Reception.

The Derm Tank session on Friday evening will also include a light reception with snacks and drinks. We want you to feel as if you’re “at-home” while you watch the dermatology version of Shark Tank!
