Wednesday Night Social Event

The theme of this year's traditional Wednesday night is "A Night At The Pike". In the early 1900s the Long Beach beach and waterfront, known as the "The Pike", was a get away for people from Los Angeles and other inland areas to escape the summer heat. The social event will take you back to that era with an event featuring an arcade, carnival games, and lots of delicious food. Don't miss this chance to take a break from the conference, relax, enjoy the vibes of yesteryear, and socialize with your fellow APEC attendees.
