Privacy After Hours, a volunteer-organized series of after-hours get togethers held all across the globe, expanded yet again this past Thursday, with 31 events held and hundreds of attendees. The big news? We're in China now! Gregory Louvel, Associate at Dechert LLP, held our first-ever party in Beijing.
In total, 10 events were held outside the United States, and we can't thank our gracious hosts enough for finding locations, helping us to spread the word and even offering up the IAPP lunchbags we offered as door prizes. Would you like to host an event? Well, drop a line to Marin, and she'll get you sorted.
And now, without further ado, some photos from the events:
