Network at the National Museum of African American History and Culture

Monday, May 13, 2019

The National Museum of African American History and Culture, the 19th and newest museum of the Smithsonian Institution, is the site for ATD 2019 Networking Night.

Sponsored by Litmos by CallidusCloud, the ticketed event will be held Tuesday, May 21, beginning at 7 p.m. and running until 11 p.m. Networking Night is your opportunity to meet peers, share what you have learned throughout the day, and discuss industry changes (and maybe get an answer to your current challenge) while you explore the museum.

During the event, attendees will be able to explore all four levels of exhibits, including the History Galleries and the Watching Oprah exhibition. The evening will feature music from the Rhythm 6 with dancing in Heritage Hall. A jazz trio and additional seating will be on the lower level in the Sweet Home Café.

An act of Congress in 2003 established the National Museum of African American History and Culture, following decades of efforts to promote and highlight African Americans’ contributions. The museum, which opened to the public on September 24, 2016, has collected more than 36,000 artifacts, and nearly 100,000 individuals have become members.


Food and beverage service, including beer and wine, will be available throughout the event. Attendees will not need drink tickets. Note that no food or drink may be brought into the exhibitions.


ATD will provide shuttles from all conference hotels to the museum the event, beginning at 6:45 p.m. through the event’s conclusion. Guests should check the hotel shuttle schedule in the Program Guide or ATD Events app for additional details.

Additional registration and tickets are required for Networking Night. The event is now sold out. Attendees who have already purchased their tickets will have them printed with their conference badge.
