Industry-Expert Theaters™

So much more – and so much more effective – than just a product theater!

ACC attendees are sophisticated customers, hungry for high-quality education – including non-accredited presentations – during their time at the ACC Annual Conference. The Industry-Expert Theaters have been fulfilling that need since 2009 to great success, averaging over 200 attendees per presentation.

A survey conducted of Industry-Expert Theater attendees at ACC.17 evidenced a high level of satisfaction and engagement:

  • 85% of respondents were satisfied with the presentation they viewed
  • 86% felt that the topic was relevant to their practice/program.
  • 87% agreed that the education design/format supported their learning.
  • 4 out of 5 respondents felt that the learning from this presentation will enhance their job performance.
  • 87% would be likely to attend another presentation in the Industry-Expert Theater

Presentation slots in the Industry-Expert Theaters are scheduled during our busiest Expo hours—the morning, mid-day and afternoon breaks. Your presentation will have limited competition with official ACC educational programming, helping to maximize attendance.

The Industry-Expert Theaters are turnkey packages that offer you a professional theater setting right in the Expo Hall. You provide the speaker(s), and the speaker(s) upload their presentations in the Speaker Ready Room beforehand or onsite.  ACC provides the venues, with classroom and theater seating for up to 225 attendees; food and beverage; a complete A/V package, including on-site technicians; and extensive pre-meeting and on-site promotion, including incorporation of your presentation information in the online meeting planner and ACC.18 mobile app.
