ESS and Basketball

The Program Committee is working to take great advantage of Philadelphia’s attractions.  First up, we have a special opportunity to take in a Sixers game…


Opportunity to go to Sixers – Wizards game during the ESS conference

David Karen of the Program Committee has reserved 20 seats at Wells Fargo Center for the Washington Wizards vs. Philadelphia 76ers game on Friday, Februrary 24th.  The game is scheduled for 7:00PM.  The arena is easily accessible by subway using the Broad Street Line going south from Center City (City Hall Station is a few blocks from the conference hotel) to the last stop (AT&T Station).  We hope to get confirmation that early arrivals for the game will have an opportunity to go down to the floor during warmups.  ESS members who purchase these seats ($21) will sit together in Section 209A (here’s the seating chart: ). 

If ESS members wish to purchase discounted tickets for seats that are closer to the floor, they can do so by using the following link:
