2020 ACP Summit in Conjunction with Continuity Insights

Be sure to join your ACP colleagues in San Antonio, Texas for ACP’s 2020 Summit! at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort. This time, our Summit will immediately follow Continuity Insights' 18th Annual Management Conference that begins Monday April 20, 2020.

While it is not required to attend Continuity Insights in order to attend the Summit, a $200 discount will be offered for attending both.  Please note that the bundled price changes based on when you register and bundle both.

  • By February 16, 2020:   $1,395, or CI Conference + Summit = Total Cost is $1,195.
  • By March 16, 2020:       $1,495, or CI Conference + Summit = Total Cost is $1,295.
  • After March 16, 2020:   $1,595, or CI Conference + Summit = Total Cost is $1,395.

Other discounts cannot be combined with the Summit discount (e.g. BCI, DRII, etc).  If you register for the Summit only, you pay the full cost of the Summit ($195) and register directly with the ACP.

Once registration is available, you can register for the ACP Summit while registering for the CI conference, right on the CI registration page. If registering ONLY for the ACP Summit, visit the ACP website once the registration page is available. That's coming soon.

The goal of having our summit directly after CI is to make it as convenient as possible and to minimize travel expenses. Continuity Insights begins on Monday April 20, 2020 and ends Wednesday, April 22 in the afternoon. The ACP Summit begins Wednesday afternoon and features a welcome reception that evening. The Summit then runs all day Thursday, April 23 concluding at 4 pm. 

More information on the conferences can be found here. Plan to be there.
