ADCC Annual Meeting & Gala

JW Marriott, Las Vegas
September 20-22, 2017

Dance competition owners and staff members, special guests and leading experts in small business management came together for the 3rd ADCC Annual Meeting September 20-22 in Las Vegas.

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

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

  • Keep current on dance competition industry issues
  • Network with colleagues
  • Expand their business acumen
  • Get inspired, get connected and get business-savvy 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 annual awards in seven industry-specific categories, and also celebrates a notable person from the world of American dance with our Lifetime Achievement Award.

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.
