The ISBNPA Dinner will be held at Desert Botanical Garden from 18:30 to 22:00 hours.

In addition to admiring the fascinating nature, we will get the opportunity to admire the art installations of Dale Chihuly.

Please note that the ISBNPA Dinner ticket is not included in full registration fee and is available for purchase during the registration process. The evening will include a buffet dinner, with entertainment and access to explore the garden trails.
