  • What will the virtual Annual Meeting experience be like?

    Through our virtual meeting platform, in addition to being able to participate in live programming and engage with speakers who are sharing their thought leadership, and being able to access recorded sessions on-demand, you will be able to interact with sponsors and their booths in a lifelike 3D virtual exhibit hall, have one-on-one conversations with sponsor representatives, and listen to live and/or pre-recorded product demos. You will be able to network with other attendees through a virtual networking lounge, small group roundtable discussions, virtual “meet-ups,” and more. We will provide the content and tools, so that you can make this experience your own

  • What will I have access to?

    For the first time in ACC history, all registrants will receive access to ALL substantive programs (both live as well as on-demand) for the same price.

    In-person attendance gives you access to all the same content you've grown to love about the ACC Annual Meeting with the added bonus of ALL programs on demand.

    Virtual attendance gives you access to all virtual programming which includes live content as well as on demand. 

    Both audiences will be able to network with peers and interact with law firms and legal service providers.

    As a brand new benefit, all registrants will receive access to all recorded sessions, on demand, for 3 months following the meeting, at no additional cost.

  • Where is the conference?

    The in-person 2020 Annual Meeting will be at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The address is 1101 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA, USA 19107.

    The virtual 2020 Annual Meeting can be accessed from wherever you have an internet connection.

  • How do I know which option – in-person or virtual – to select when registering?

    It depends on how you plan to attend the 2020 Annual Meeting – in-person in Philadelphia, or virtually wherever you have an internet connection.

  • I have a question about CLE/CPD credits.

    How many CLE credits will I earn?

    • Credits earned depend on the sessions you attend, how you attend (in-person or virtually), and your jurisdiction(s). For CLE information and approvals as they become available, please visit our CLE/CPD information page.

    How do I get my CLE certificate (Certificate of Attendance)?

    • About a week following the end of the meeting, we will email all attendees with information about accessing their personal CLE/CPD Service Center, where they will be able to confirm the sessions they attended and then download their Certificate of Attendance.

    I didn't receive that email about CLE/CPD.

    • We ask attendees to first check their spam/junk mail folders. The email sender will be ACC Education. If you still can't find the email, please contact us and we will re-send you that information.

    If you have additional questions related to CLE/CPD credits, please contact [email protected].

  • I'm coming from outside the US. What do I need to know?

    Make your appointment, with your US Embassy or Consulate, for a visa interview as soon as possible. If necessary, request a letter of invitation from ACC. For further information, please see this Visa Help Sheet (PDF), as well as the From Abroad section on the Hotel & Travel page.

  • What if I need to cancel my registration?

    To cancel your registration, please email us as soon as you know you need to cancel. We must receive your cancellation request in writing. Please note the cancellation deadline

    Cancelling your registration does NOT cancel your hotel reservation (if attending in-person). You will need to cancel your hotel reservation separately. To do so, please contact the hotel you made a reservation at.

  • I have a question about rates/registration deadlines/group discounts/substitutions.

    Please visit our Venue & Rates page for answers to your questions.

  • What is the dress code (if attending in-person)?

    While onsite, we encourage you to dress comfortably. We want to encourage an informal environment, in which your attention is centered on your education. Because of the amount of walking expected, please be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Meeting rooms may run cold, so we recommend bringing a sweater or jacket.
