Virtual 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 Scientific Session & Expo. The Industry-Expert Theaters have been fulfilling that need since their debut in 2009 to great success.

A survey conducted of Industry-Expert Theater attendees at ACC.19 evidenced a high level of satisfaction and engagement:

  • 88% of respondents were satisfied with the presentation they viewed.
  • 9 out of 10 respondents felt that the topic was relevant to their practice/program.
  • 88% agreed that the education design/format supported their learning.
  • 82% of respondents felt that the learning from this presentation will enhance their job performance.
  • 84% 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. 

The Virtual Industry-Expert Theaters can be found on the Industry Sessions tab within the main ACC.21 program. Presentations can be recorded in advance or live streamed to the audience with the option for Q&A and live chat. ACC provides the virtual platform to host the presentation, the tech support to make sure the presentation runs smoothly; and extensive promotion, including the incorporation of your session in the online planner and conference agenda. After your presentation, the session can be made available "On Demand" for attendees to watch until December 31, 2021.
