The Virtual Field Tours, April 1st
Traveling across fields via modern technology is not an April Fool's joke, but it is a must-see according to Ed and the IFCO team.

Welcome Reception, April 1st, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Make new connections or reconnect with those you’ve missed. IFCO is excited to see you, and so are the members of TIPA as everyone prepares for the opening of the show.
When you’re not directly involved with the dynamic itinerary, Ed gave some noted shout outs, including:
- Stopping by 18 Oaks for some fine dining - happy hour is from 2 to 6 p.m.
- NCAA Final Four for basketball fans, specifically at the JW Marriott’s High Velocity Sports Grill
- Visiting the JW Marriott's Cibolo Moon for some authentic Texas eats
And of course, don’t forget to look over the Schedule-at-a-Glance. Stop by booth #82 to visit Ed and the IFCO team, and let them know if you tried the Grill’s sweet onion rings!
