Workshops are deep-dive, advanced sessions are held on Sunday, September 11th, and Wednesday, September 14th. Workshops are included in the Value Pass or you can add them on a la carte when you register for a Conference Pass. Once you’ve purchased them, you will be asked to select which workshop topics you plan to attend. This occurs in the spring and we will email you to remind you. You must select your workshops prior to attending APC.

Sessions are included with both the Conference and Value Pass. You will not be able to select the topics in advance and all sessions are first-come, first-seated at APC. If a session reaches capacity please work with a member of the APC Event team or check the APC mobile app to find another available session at that time. All morning sessions on Monday and Tuesday repeat in the afternoon.

If you are in need of closed captioning or any other accommodation, please contact us at info@apcevent.com.

 

Yes. While we do our best to plan room sizes based on how many attendees we think we will have, some sessions end up seeing higher attendance than others. Every attendee will have a seat at the keynote presentations.

Once a session has reached capacity, the room doors will close, and attendees can work with event staff to find another session with available seating. You also may have the opportunity to attend a session that hit capacity as our general sessions on Monday and Tuesday repeat in the afternoon.

We will not be able to accommodate any changes to room capacities. We ask that tables and chairs remain in place and are not moved. Each room and space will be setup in accordance with our seating and spacing guidelines and should not be altered.

APC has set the bar for excellence in administrative and executive assistant training. We cover the skills needed by office and administrative professionals across 5 different educational tracks. 

Session Tracks

Unfortunately APC is not able to offer any discount opportunities for park passes this year. If you are looking to visit any of the parks during your trip to Orlando, we encourage you to use this site to reserve your pass and/or My Disney Experience mobile app for details.

IMPORTANT NOTE: the ticketing and reservations process has changed significantly post pandemic. When you purchase a ticket, you will need to make a reservation for a specific park on a specific day. We’ve heard the parks are consistently busy so, we recommend purchasing early!

Registrations may be cancelled if written notice is provided to resources@apcevent.com. However, registration fees paid are non-refundable, except that when the cancellation notice is received by August 12, 2022, in which case a refund will be issued in the amount paid less the cancellation fee of $300. Substitutions of registrants may be made to other employees at the same company at any time up to the start of the event. 

Once a badge (either physical or virtual) is issued it cannot be transferred to another. Those in attendance whose identity does not match an issued badge may be removed and precluded from participation in future Diversified events. If an event is canceled by Diversified and a registrant does not timely request a refund or confirm what other event or service the fees should be applied toward, such fees will be forfeited.

Arrival and Check In Process at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

We are anticipating a large volume of check ins to occur around the same time. The hotel has setup a Remote Check In & Luggage Storage location for APC attendees in Durango 1 & 2. This check in area will be open Saturday, September 10th from 9:30 AM – 6:00 PM.

If you are arriving via taxi or ride-share, please ask your driver to drop you off at the Convention Center Porte Cochere, not the Front Desk of Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. Then proceed to Durango 1 & 2 to check-in for your room reservation and store luggage, if needed.

If you are arriving via the airport shuttle, it will drop you at the Gran Destino Tower.

  • Once you enter the Gran Destino Tower, use the elevator or stairs to go to the Lower Lobby. Cast Members will be available to direct you.
  • Proceed through the walkway towards the Convention Center.
  • When you reach the Convention Center, look for Durango 1 & 2 to check-in for your room reservation and store luggage, if needed.

When your room is ready, you may retrieve your luggage from the Luggage Storage location in Durango 1 & 2 and proceed to your guest room.

You are welcome to have your luggage delivered to your room, however, you must be in your room to accept the luggage when the Bellhop arrives.

Departure and Luggage Storage Process at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

If your departure is on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, there will be Luggage Storage available in Durango 1 &2 from 7:00 AM – 5:30 PM. There will be Cast Members there to check your luggage and store it until you are ready to depart and take your luggage with you. After 5:30 PM, any luggage that is left in this remote storage area will be relocated to the Gran Destino tower luggage storage room.

The meals will include options designed to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies. Each item will be clearly labeled with specific dietary ingredients. If you do not find anything at the buffet specific to your dietary needs, you can speak with any member of the banquet staff, and they can prepare a special plate for you.

Please note: a special request will take the banquet staff additional time to prepare from the kitchen, so your patience is very much appreciated.
