Dear ACPC Participants,
Mark your calendars to join us at the newly renovated Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina Hotel for the Air Carriers Purchasing Conference from August 26-29, 2017. Our conference theme, “Commitment to Excellence”, highlights positive actions and strategies for overcoming obstacles in our professional and personal journeys to be the best we can be and to set new standards of excellence in the aviation industry.
Three decades in the aviation industry has provided me the opportunity to recognize the extraordinary value that the ACPC brings to our industry. For this reason, it is an honor and a privilege for me to be part of this Conference and I am delighted to serve as your 2017 ACPC Supplier Chair, alongside Airline Chair, Robert Bial of Berry Aviation.
Registration opens on Monday, May 1, 2017 at 9:00 am Eastern Time. This conference is certain to sell-out. Therefore, I urge you to register early!
Countless opportunities are created each year during the Aviation Networking Forum (ANF) for suppliers and airlines to meet and conduct business. ANF booth space is limited and this venue often sells out within a few hours on the first day of registration. Ensure your spot immediately after you register for the conference, if you wish to participate in this popular networking event.
Increasing your exposure leads to optimal networking scenarios and adds value to your ACPC experience. This year take advantage of securing a Corporate or Golf Sponsorship in order to give your company a greater presence at the most productive aviation conference worldwide. In order to make this a powerful advertising tool for our suppliers, we only sell a limited number of sponsorships each year. Be sure to purchase a sponsorship (s) for your company before they are gone!
This year’s Merle Hellerstedt Golf Tournament will take place at Riverwalk Golf Club, located in the heart of San Diego's Mission Valley. Riverwalk Golf Club's superb amenities and outstanding service have earned it recognition among the region's premier semi-private golf courses. You are encouraged to sign up early to take part in this event as space is limited.
Conference registration, ANF booth reservations, sponsorship opportunities and golf tournament sign-ups are only available online at www.acpc.com, beginning May 1.
Other features of this year’s conference include: Airline Round Tables, Professional Development Breakout Sessions, Hospitality Suite, informal Meet and Greet Sessions, Welcome Reception, Business Luncheons with speakers, Dinners with entertainment, and more.
Through the generosity of our participants, APCP has been instrumental in shaping the lives of people in need year after year and making the world a better place. The tradition of “ACPC Gives Back” continues this year with Promises2Kids, a charity selected by Berry Aviation. Promises2Kids provides current and former foster youths in San Diego County with the tools, opportunities, and guidance they need to address the circumstances that brought them into foster care, overcome the difficulties of their past, and grow into healthy, happy and successful adults.
Visit the ACPC website throughout the year at www.acpc.com for updates and conference news.
The Board of Directors, the Airline Steering Committee and the Committee Coordinators are dedicated to making your attendance at this year’s conference a relevant and valuable experience.
See you in San Diego!
