After holding a virtual Annual Meeting in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ADCC is planning an in-person event for September 2021.
Dance competition owners and staff members, special guests and speakers will come together for the seventh ADCC Annual Meeting September 20-22 in Orlando, Florida.
New members can attend a New Member Orientation on Sunday, September 19, before the conference begins.
This year’s Annual Meeting will have three main components: Workshops & Professional Development, a Vendor Fair, and a Gala.
Workshop & Professional Development sessions were designed to help competition owners and staff:
The ADCC Vendor Fair helps Members connect with industry-focused companies who can help them save money throughout the competition and convention season. Past Business Partners & Vendor Fair participants include Custom Built Awards, DRC Video, TourPro Software, ConferenceDirect, DanceComp Genie, Iconic Trophies, LBW Insurance & Financial Services, Crown Awards, Gerriets Dance Floors, HelmsBriscoe, Performance Stage, Inc., PSSL-ProSound & Stage Lighting. Vendors also include Media Partners DanceMedia, DanceCompetitionHub, and Inside Dance magazine.
The ADCC Gala celebrates the end of each competition season.
Normally, the ADCC Gala features dinner and entertainment, and the ADCC’s own Industry Excellence Awards, recognizing outstanding accomplishments and service within the dance competition industry.
The Gala celebration will be a bit different in 2021, with ADCC members joining together to recognize the many accomplishments of a challenging pandemic year.
