Conference App
Thanks to 806 TechnologiesACET can proudly offer the ACET Conference App. The conference app is compatible with both Apple and Android devices.  Information such as conference schedule, daily agendas, session descriptions, exhibitors, presenters, Hospitality Hour and much more will all be readily available on your smart phone or tablet. Be sure to allow for “push notifications” to receive information about conference activities. 
Please sign up for sessions in the app.  This may not guarantee a seat, but ACET does use this to determine if a larger room is necessary (when a larger space is available to move the session to accommodate numbers.)

Thursday, October 24th will be ACET Spirit Day!  ACET shirts will be worn on this last day of the conference. T-shirts will be $15.00.  Be looking for the link to order your ACET t-shirt in the next ACET News!
