Looking forward to seeing you in Las Vegas

It’s almost time for the PCAPPA 2019 Conference. Get ready for another enriching experience!

We are excited and looking forward to seeing you at the spectacular Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Come experience the knowledge pool of diverse and cutting-edge ideas, best practices and more. Connect, inspire, be inspired, recharge your knowledge toolbox and build your leadership capacity to tackle the challenges in facilities today.

To get started, join us at 6pm, Sunday, Sept. 29 for a welcome reception in the PCAPPA Conference Hall of Resources. For first-timers, we have a very special PCAPPA welcome event at 5pm in the Wilshire Ballroom.

Our Opening Keynote Speaker on Monday September 30, is Patti Dobrowolski, an Author, Speaker, Strategic Illustrator and Change Agent who will incite your curiosity with her visual goal-setting tools.

Then join us for an array of insightful educational sessions to pique your curiosity throughout the conference.

We will celebrate our 2019 successes, our APPA awardees and we will share highlights of our new Strategic Action Plan.

This conference will invalidate the “Vegas Rule” of what happens at the PCAPPA conference, because our Closing Keynote Speaker, Motivational Improviser Avish Parashar, will dazzle you with stories and audience interaction and provoke you to share your stories to transform others and your organization.

So get ready, and safe travels to Vegas!
