Airline Participation Guidelines

     Atlanta, Georgia
     Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel -

     Online Registration will begin Monday, May 2, 2016, 9:00 AM Eastern
     Registration will be available beginning on Monday, May 2nd 9:00 am Eastern thru
     Friday, July 22nd at 5:00 pm Eastern unless the conference is sold out prior to July 22nd.


    This conference is primarily supported by our Suppliers and it is imperative that we, as Airline participants, engage in all of the programs. The knowledge you will gain from the breakout sessions and the new contacts you will make with both Airline and Supplier participants will prove to be rewarding and useful. 


    To receive Airline status (gratis/free registration) at the ACPC, you must work solely and exclusively for the airline as an airline employee in a purchasing and/or repair sourcing capacity and not for the MRO, Technic/Engineering, or Tech Ops division. ACPC Airline attendees may not be a third party contractor or partner and/or be employed by an airline in a  position whose primary function is to sell surplus or offer services to other airlines or suppliers.  Leasing companies with 50 or more owned aircraft, who agree to the guidelines listed below and are approved by the ACPC Board will receive Airline status (gratis/free registration). 


    Participation in any Supplier sponsored event or invitation for 24 hours on Sunday, 24 hours on Monday and on Tuesday until 3 pm, August 27 – August 29, 2017 is in direct conflict with the ACPC Airline Rules and Guidelines. This conflict could result in the offending Airline’s attendees being disqualified from receiving the benefit of a free/gratis registration ($995 .00 USD value) to future ACPC conferences. Airlines are free to participate in Supplier sponsored invitations all day on Friday 8/25, all day on Saturday 8/26, except between 4:30PM to 6:30 PM on Saturday 8/26, when your presence is requested at the Welcome Reception. It is also permissible to accept a Supplier invitation on Tuesday, August 29th after 2 pm. 


    Only one Spouse/Guest is permitted per airline attendee and you are required to pay the social registration fee of $500.00. There will be no onsite/walk-up registrations accepted at the conference. Please refer to the ACPC Rules and Guidelines posted on 


    The following is a list of expectations for which we need all Airline participants to hold one another accountable.
