IPC20 will be held in New Orleans, LA. The New Orleans Marriott will be the headquarters for the AFPM functions. The Sheraton New Orleans and the JW Marriott New Orleans, both across Canal Street from the Marriott, will also participate in the group housing block and offer meeting space and suites for affiliate functions. To help our member companies plan for this change in destination, AFPM is hosting an Affiliate Meeting on August 15-16 to familiarize everyone with the properties and meeting and entertainment options.
