  • Make it a Vacation.
    We’ve designed the meeting schedule to include time off for you to enjoy the parks and all Orlando has to offer. So go ahead, bring your family, and get a Disney vacation along with your education!

Exhibition

Exhibit hours are scheduled each day, at times separate from the education sessions, so you won’t have to choose between earning CE credits and the opportunity to spend time with the companies offering innovative products and services to help your business or practice thrive. Explore the exhibit hall floor plan and determine which companies you want to visit.

Note: Due to health and safety considerations, children under the age of 16 will not be admitted to the exhibit hall.

Spouse / Guest Registration

You are encouraged to register your spouse and guests accompanying you to the conference. In addition to all that the Swan / Dolphin has to offer and a variety of spectacular local attractions, they will enjoy and the benefits of being a registered spouse or guest at the conference, including:

  • Admittance to all education sessions, many of which have broad appeal (sorry, no CE credit for this registration category)
  • Admittance to the exhibit hall all three days
  • Admittance to the Kick-Off Reception on Tuesday evening

Green Meetings

ASCP is committed to environmental stewardship and implementing sustainable practices as an integral part of our events. Our goals are to:

  • Minimize or eliminate any real or potential negative environmental impact
  • Educate our staff, exhibitors, local hosts, and guests about responsible green choices they can make for their events and their own lives, both personal and professional
  • Demonstrate the economic and community benefits of greening

Like many organizations, ASCP is working to deliver more environmentally responsible meetings. We hope the incremental eco-improvements we are making with our own events will offer ideas and inspire you as well.

During the planning and execution of our meeting, we will:

  • Reduce paper mailings through the use of electronic communication for registration, confirmations, and surveys
  • Provide each attendee with a water bottle to refill and use throughout the meeting
  • Minimize the amount of signage waste through the use of plasma screens and re-usable signage wherever possible
  • Provide conference materials via electronic media

Please join us in these efforts and take steps to go green and make a difference.
