Our quest to enhance the event experience for our attendees, exhibitors, and speakers is never-ending. We wanted this year to be better than the last, which is why we created a mobile app through CrowdCompass for the 2017 APC Winter Conference.  Here are just a few benefits and reasons why you don’t want to miss out on the app:


  • Access the event schedule and customize your agenda with personal appointments
  • See all the speakers, read their bios
  • Get important updates through the app through Push Notifications
  • See who’s attending and share contact information by networking with other attendees

To access the app, download the CrowdCompass AttendeeHub app on your mobile device.  Enter APC into the event search and download our event.  Then, be sure to log in on the user list (upper left corner) to utilize the full functionality of the app.  You can access a meeting schedule here.


For additional information and to secure your sponsorship and/or advertisement, please contact Christina Taylor or call 703-838-9500.


If you are not a member of APC, please contact Christina Taylor at 703-838-9500 to ask about attendance options for non-members.
