After brief introductions, student find seats at small tables with four or five other students and a television professional. They talk freely for about a half an hour then a charming bell is rung and everyone plays musical chairs moving to another table and the talking begins anew. (Don't worry, we don't take out chairs each round!)
At the end of fours hours it's hard to stop, but we want everyone wanting more so they come back next year. And they do.
IDEAS has expanded the invitations each year to make "Meet The Pros" a Regional event.
