This will be my first annual meeting, what do you suggest I see and do?
Make sure you pick out the courses you would like to attend when you register or before you arrive onsite as popular courses fill fast. The exhibit hall features hundreds of companies showing off the latest products in EM. Within the exhibit floor and check out innovatED to see one of the many mock codes featuring the latest technologies. ACEP17 also features some spectacular networking parties on Sunday and Tuesday where you can eat, network and have some fun. And ACEP’s Research Forum, EM’s premier research event, is fully integrated into the educational schedule, making it easier than ever to view and discuss original research.

What should I wear to ACEP17 events?
Attire for the meeting is business casual. Every effort will be made to provide a comfortable learning environment; however, meeting room temperatures can fluctuate greatly and may be difficult to control. The temperature is often cool in the meeting rooms, therefore, a jacket or sweater is recommended for the conference. Cocktail or after-five apparel is appropriate for the President's Awards Gala.
What is ACEP doing to transition into green meetings?
ACEP has made a commitment to the environment by making small but powerful changes in our meetings that will positively impact the environment and reduce the carbon footprint of ACEP and each registrant and exhibitor. Here is what to expect this year:
No paper syllabi will be distributed onsite. Syllabi submitted by our speakers will be available to download on the My Registration portion of the ACEP17 website prior to the conference for those wanting to print a copy before the meeting.
- Paperless Evaluations - course evaluations all done online.
- Tote bags made from partially recycled materials.
- Registrant badges will be recycled.
- Exhibit hall carpet will be recycled.
As we continue the journey, we welcome your ideas to help us achieve this goal.
