Sunday Evening through Wednesday Mid-Day

  Don’t Miss A Single Chance to Connect!        Talking to Strangers – Some Tips

Corporate entertaining starts on Saturday night with private dinners and shows, so book your hotel and air tickets so you will be in Vegas when the fun begins.

IWIRC’s co-located fall meeting starts their networking on Saturday, October 7 evening with a reception a Bally’s Skyview Rooms (connected to the Paris) featuring knock out city views. Register for the IWIRC meeting or buy a reception only ticket at www.IWIRC.com. The International Women’s Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation is an organization committed to the connection, promotion and success of women in the insolvency and restructuring professions worldwide.

Sunday 5:30- 7:30 the AIRA WELCOME RECEPTION kicks off the NCBJ 91st Annual Conference at the Paris Hotel. Grab your NCBJ badge and start connecting with colleagues from across the country. Drinks! Appetizers!  1000+ Insolvency Pros and Judges make a lively crowd. Meet up with your dinner partners and launch your Vegas experience. Your NCBJ badge is your admission, courtesy of the Association of Insolvency & Restructuring Advisors and their reception partners.

Plan to Breakfast with Friends on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings 7:30 – 9 am in Concorde B.  More seating at tables and casual conversation settings. Included with NCBJ registration. Less sugar, more healthy choices!


Monday, October 9 and Tuesday, October 10 Mid-morning Breaks are 30 minutes and give you time to take care of necessities, enjoy a beverage and snacks and find the people you want to meet.


Federal Bar Association joins the conference this year with a Monday afternoon 1-hour program.



Final Night Reception starts the evening drinks and appetizers at 5:30 – 6:30pm so you still have plenty of time for an amazing dinner at a chef’s signature restaurant and get to your pick of fabulous Vegas entertainment. There’s no chance of competing with the international array of hot restaurants and top artists performing in Las Vegas Show rooms. So pick your pleasure, go with friends or as an invited guest. It’s time on your own to Do Vegas!

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

To honor the victims of the horrific events in Las Vegas on Sunday, we have decided not to hold our traditional “After Party” at this year’s NCBJ Conference. Instead, we will be donating the party funds to United Blood Services in Las Vegas. Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones also will contribute up to an additional $50,000 to match the donations made by any NCBJ Conference attendee. Upon arriving at the conference to pick up registration materials, there will be several donation boxes for you to drop a check made out to United Blood Services (cash cannot be accepted). Checks collected by the end of the day on Tuesday, 10/10/17, will be matched by our firm. We hope you understand our reluctance to throw a party under these circumstances and look forward to hosting all of you at next year’s conference in San Antonio.
