The 2024 ADCC Annual Retreat

The 2024 ADCC Annual Retreat

ADCC dance competition owners and staff members, special guests and speakers will come together for the 2024 ADCC Annual Retreat, September 23-25 at the Opal Grand Oceanfront Resort & Spa in Delray Beach, Florida.

The 2024 gathering will bring members together to embark together on the ADCC’s second decade as a professional association. Exciting speakers will offer practical solutions, business insight and food for thought all designed to help your company strive for excellence. Learn from peers in breakout sessions, explore how to level up your business strategy, production, and social media game with tips and tricks from seasoned professionals, get to know Business Partners and Vendors who can help you streamline your business, save money, or help elevate your company’s customer service experience to the next level.

In addition to business sessions, there will be ample opportunities for fun as well: the Annual Meeting Committee is exploring fun team-building and social venues.

We are excited to see you at the upcoming Annual Retreat — recently renamed to reflect the relaxing, sociable, think-tank spirit of this redesigned signature ADCC event.
