The agenda is designed to inspire new ideas and thought-provoking marketing, and will include the following educational sessions:

• “How Aftermarket-Specific Training Benefits You And Your Company”
presented by Donna Wagner, Northwood University
• “Real-World Strategies for Today’s Promotional Marketplace” presented by John Portelli and Charlie Farah, Advertising Checking Bureau

• Numerous group discussions designed to stimulate enlightenment and problem-solving

In addition, networking opportunities will encourage interaction with marketing peers, and all planned events are inspired by Austin’s local culture. A rooftop networking experience at Maggie Mae’s offers a panoramic view of the Austin skyline, while a sunset “bat cruise” will provide the unique experience to observe flight of the largest urban bat colony in the world.

The ACC annual conference will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 14 and conclude at 12 p.m. on Thursday, April 16.  All ACC members and non-members are welcome. Early-bird registration is available through Monday, March 13, and is $450 for ACC members, and $550 for non-members.  Registration is still available after March 13, but registration fees will increase to $550 for ACC members, and $650 for non-members.
