Event Information

Please join us for the 2023 Traversant Group Fall Forum, November 14-15, in Phoenix, Arizona. We will be hosting the Forum at the Thunderbird School of Global Management. Registration includes attendance, access to event materials and meals (breakfast, lunch and snacks) for both days.

This year’s forum will be held at:

Thunderbird School of Global Management
401 N. 1st Street
Phoenix, AZ 85004


*Click Here for Parking Instructions.

There is parking on the street and public parking garages within walking distance. However, we caution you to arrive early due to student traffic.

What is the dress code for the event? 

Business casual. The weather should be in the 80’s for the high and mid 50’s for the low. Perfect weather!

Where do I park?

We’ve included a map and a recommended parking garage above. However, there are a number of parking garages in the vicinity, as well as street parking.

What time should I arrive?

Please arrive between 8 – 8:30am on Tuesday, 11/14. We will have a check-in table with name badges outside of the Forum room. Please note, you will be in a college building with students and professors. It may or may not be a little crowded.

How will I find the Fall Forum?

We will have signage in the main lobby.

How will the room be set up?

The room will be set up with round tables. The speakers will be at the front of the room. Please grab a seat where you like.

Will I have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a government official?

Maybe. Most likely you will be sharing your time with a number of Traversant Group clients in a small group. The best way to make an impression is to ask a question during the Q&A and then follow up with the government official after the Fall Forum. Our government official speakers have agreed to attend because of the educational nature of the event, not because it is a speed-dating opportunity.

Are there any evening events on the first night of the Fall Forum?

The Thunderbird School of Global Management has a pub on the top floor of the college with great views of downtown Phoenix. The pub is open until 8:00pm. If you would like to socialize after the event, we encourage you to to check it out. The Traversant Group team can’t make any promises to attend since it will have been an early day and we need to get ready for the second day.

Will I be able to take business calls at the Fall Forum?

We have networking breaks throughout both days. You can step outside of the Fall Forum room into the main lobby of the college or step outside the building. We will not have designated conference or break out rooms to make calls.


Many of you have asked if we can share a list of the Traversant Group clients to have registered for the event. In the spirit of partnership and collaboration, we are providing the Fall Forum RSVP List.
