ACCED-I 37th Annual Conference
March 26 - 29, 2017
Orlando, FL



Saturday, March 25, from 5:30-7pm

Meet Greet and Off to Eat is the only way to start off the ACCED-I 37th Annual Conference with your best foot forward. Socialize with the greatest event planners in the country over the best food Disney has to offer!

Join one of four groups in the hotel lobby at 4:30pm to walk from the hotel to Bongos, Paradiso 37, Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant, or Wolfgang Puck for dinner and networking. Reservations are Saturday, March 25, at 5:30pm and limited seats are available. Email Hannah Uram ( to reserve your seat at the table. You don’t want to miss this!


We are looking for volunteers to be First-Timer Guides at this year’s Annual Conference.  A First-Timer Guide is a professional with 3+ years of experience in the collegiate conference and event management field AND who has attended at least one ACCED-I Annual Conference in the past 5 years.  Guides want to make sure our First-Timers feel welcomed and empowered through their attendance at the Annual Conference. They ensure that First-Timers know that Guides are a ready resource and ‘buddy’ for them throughout their time at the conference.

Please take some time to review the additional information here and reach out to with any questions you may have. We hope you’ll consider helping our newest members  and attendees toward becoming experienced ACCED-I pros!

Find Your Running Buddy

Don’t let the #ACCEDI2017 conference networking stop just because you’ve got to keep to your running schedule. Visit our ‘find a friend’ board at hospitality during the conference to connect with a running buddy and hit the pavement. 


Pause for Pups

Sunday, March 26th - 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM and Monday, March 27th - 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM
