ADCC Annual Meeting & Gala

Astor Crowne Plaza, New Orleans
September 25-28, 2018

Dance competition owners and staff members, special guests and leading experts in small business management will come together for the 4th ADCC Annual Meeting September 25-28 in New Orleans. The 25th will be an optional pre-conference day for excursions, sightseeing and social time with staff and other ADCC Members.

Check out the Astor Crowne Plaza hotel website. It’s part of the Intercontinental Hotel Group, so ADCC Members may book rooms for the Annual Meeting using points—just let us know so that we can make sure you’re included in the room block.

Dance competitions MUST be ADCC Members to attend the Annual Meeting & Gala. New members are welcome at the event, and a New Member Orientation is scheduled before the conference begins.

This year’s Annual Meeting will have two components: Workshops & Professional Development, and the Industry Awards Gala.

Workshop & Professional Development sessions are designed to help competition owners and staff:

  • Keep current on dance competition industry issues
  • Expand their business acumen
  • Network with colleagues
  • Get inspired, get connected and get industry-focused information not found anywhere else!

The Industry Awards Gala is a chance to celebrate the end of each competition season. The Gala features dinner and top-flight entertainment, and our own Industry Excellence Awards recognizing outstanding accomplishments and service within the dance competition industry. The ADCC presents multiple awards in various industry-specific categories, and also celebrates a notable person from the world of American dance with our Lifetime Achievement Award.
