APCO Show Daily
Monday, August 8

We begin today with the Opening General Session in the convention center ballroom, featuring a keynote address from Bret Baier, Fox News Chief Political Anchor and Host of Special Report with Bret Baier.

The exhibit hall opens today! There is a lot going on in the exhibit hall this year, including the Career Advancement Center, Resume Review, Public Safety Vehicle Area, Presentation Theater, Blood Drive, Dog Demonstrations and the New Products Zone. Stop by the APCO Pavilion to meet with staff about APCO programs and services. As you make your way through the hall, don’t forget to complete the Expo Quest, your chance to win a full complimentary registration to next year’s conference in Orlando, FL. 

While at the APCO Pavilion, check out live demos of APCO IntelliComm®, the next generation criteria-based guidecard software that is supported by IBM Watson Analytics. See the schedule or request a personal demo.

In 2017, George Mason University’s Center for Social Science Research (CSSR) conducted a systematic study based on surveys of ECC directors and employees throughout the United States. The study was commissioned by APCO. Be sure to attend the session, New Findings and Improved Tools for Staffing and Retention, taking place today from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. in CC, 322-323, for a review of the findings.


While you are attending APCO 2019, we remind you to be mindful of your personal safety. As when visiting any big city, it is important to maintain a sense of awareness when making your way between the convention center and your hotel, traveling to event locations, or enjoying Baltimore's restaurants and activities. 
Here are a few safety tips to follow while you are attending APCO's conference and expo:
* Don't wear your conference badges on the streets. 
* Walk in groups. Use the buddy system; don't walk, shop or dine alone.
* Be mindful of device and purse snatchers.
* Be extra careful after dark. 
* Stay in well-lit areas.
* Let others know where you are and where you'll be going. 

 We want you to have a safe and happy APCO 2019.
