2023 ACPC Spring Newsletter

2023 ACPC Chairman Tonya Wondolowski Professional Aircraft Accessories

In a time of economic uncertainty and unprecedented challenges, it is more critical, now more than ever, to work together with our industry partners. This year, we will “Forge Ahead Together” at the 2023 ACPC as we connect and collaborate for strategies and solutions to overcome the difficulties facing the aviation industry today.  

Over the years, the ACPC has become known as the most productive aviation conference in the world, offering endless opportunities to network with peers. This year’s conference in New York City will be no different. Read on for more details about what this year’s conference has to offer so you don’t miss out.

Mark your calendars for the Company Commitment on Monday, May 8th at 9:00 AM ET and individual attendee registration, along with hotel reservations, the following Monday, May 15th at 9:00 AM ET.   Be sure to visit the ACPC website regularly for registration and other detailed information about the conference.

Airline Roundtable Sessions – Taking place on Monday and Tuesday, this venue is where you get to “hit it over the fences” during the conference. Airline Roundtable Sessions are the most popular networking offering at the ACPC, allowing registered supplier companies to schedule face to face meetings with the airlines. Additional appointments may be available on Sunday after the initial selections have been made by all priority groups on Saturday. How do you get the best meetings? Priority groupings are based on the timestamp of your Company Commitment, so secure your Company Commitment early, beginning at 9 AM ET on Monday, May 8th. We also encourage you to read about the Airline Roundtable policies on our website to be as prepared as possible.  

Aviation Networking Forum (ANF) – Our one-day only trade-show portion of the show is held on Sunday from 1 PM to 6 PM. The ANF continues to be one of the best venues to showcase your company’s products/services. The first 2 ½ hours provide exclusive access for our registered airline attendees to walk the exhibit floor and allow the exhibitor companies additional face-time with potential airlines customers. Once the “airlines only session” is over, the venue will be open to all registered attendees. ANF spaces are a bargain at only $850 per booth. Spots are limited and they WILL sell out! The booths sold-out in less than an hour last year, so be sure to register as early as possible to secure a booth for this year’s event. ANF booths are open for purchase when securing your Company Commitment at 9 AM ET on Monday, May 8th. Everyone is encouraged to read the ANF policies located on our website.  

Sponsorships – A corporate sponsorship is another excellent opportunity to highlight your company and increase your exposure at the ACPC. For only $600, a corporate sponsorship ensures that your company logo is displayed prominently in the Hospitality Suite and also on the large screens in the Broadway Ballroom before meals during the conference. Corporate sponsorship opportunities are limited and can be purchased with your Company Commitment beginning at 9 AM ET on Monday, May 8th.
