Based on valuable feedback, we’re testing a new layout of our Signature Speaker Series, in order to provide a better environment for networking and to help with congestion in the large corridor at the beginning of the event.

New tables for mingling in the large corridor

Upon entrance to the event, high top tables and snacks will be set up in the large corridor, where the buffet used to be located. This space will be open starting at 11:15am and until the doors open to the main ballroom for the buffet. We welcome all attendees to use this space for networking and connecting!

Buffet tables now located in the ballroom

Buffet lines will be now formed inside the ballroom, one to the left and one to the right as you enter the room.

The general timeline for the event will remain the same. Registration begins at 11:15. When you arrive to the luncheon, enter the main door and pick up a name tag at the registration tables as usual. Then proceed to the left to the main corridor to enjoy snacks and mingle with fellow AMA attendees. Once the main ballroom opens, proceed to either buffet line and find a seat. Opening remarks will commence at 12:00pm, and the event will close at 1:00pm.


The AMA Richmond Board would love to hear your feedback on this new layout. Please email your feedback to or tell a Board member at the event!
