For Spring Conference

Choose Your Conference Experience

  1. In-Person Experience

    There is limited space at our in-person conference. To ensure you can attend in Asheville, register as soon as possible. The in-person experience will include LIVE pre-conference sessions, networking, a mutual aid meeting, World Congress, exhibitor resources, and the opportunity to speak face-to-face with conference speakers. You will still need to download the WHOVA app for the in-person experience.

    Conference will take place at Crowne Plaza. Book your hotel room with APNC’s group rate here.

    NOTE: Group rate ends on March 18. 

  2. Virtual Experience

    The virtual experience allows you to access content from the comfort of your home or office. Through our conference app, Whova, you will have access to exhibitors’ virtual booths, on-demand sessions, and a virtual lobby, networking, and meetups.

    For the best experience, download the Whova app before the conference. We’ll send out updates through Whova to keep you informed.

  3. Hybrid Experience

    Everyone gets to be part of the hybrid experience through the WHOVA app! To bridge the gap between the virtual and in-person experiences, the hybrid experience includes virtual networking with attendees and exhibitors, access to continuing education hours, and a variety of fun contests throughout the conference. Content will remain on-demand for all attendees for 30 days after the conference. 

    *NOTE: In the event of technical difficulties, APNC may choose not to provide any given session virtually or for CE credit post-conference.
