Administrative Professionals Conference Celebrates its 25th Anniversary in Las Vegas

October 10, 2017


Just a few weeks ago, we were together in Las Vegas for the 25th Anniversary of the APC and it was our best conference yet!

More than 2,000 attendees and 55 partner companies gathered from all 50 states and many countries. We were especially proud that so many affected by the recent hurricanes still made getting to the APC a top priority – and we were pleased to deliver an event that was worth it! Participants connected at four motivating keynotes, energetic active learning sessions, in-depth pre- and post-conference workshops and fabulous opening and closing night parties. Not to mention the 50+ exhibitors and sponsors who showcased a broad spectrum of productivity solutions, and the dozens of engaging sessions across five content themes.  Attendees learned how to adapt to shifting priorities, leverage communications and collaboration, develop new skills, and keep up with evolving technology.

Outside of the programs’ regular sessions, attendees had an opportunity to grow their careers through the renowned PACE certification. A sold-out, onsite PACE Review Prep Course gave people an intensive final review before having the option to take the exam on-site, and was even used by many to jump-start their PACE studying process. Congratulations to those who left Las Vegas PACE certified!

By its 5th anniversary, the Executive Assistants’ Summit (EA Summit) maxed out at 500 attendees, filling a gap in high-level training for EAs who are viewed by their executives as highly valuable business assets.

@ASAPadmns One of best conferences I've attended. Can't wait to enhance my teaching of Admins in Training! #clackamasCC_AOProgram

With thousands of posts, photos, and tweets surfacing each day, it was an excellent year for connecting via social media! Nearly every attendee used the APC Mobile App to meet new people and grow their network. Click here to view our favorite photos

It was an amazing event and we are already excited for APC 2018!
