No One Throws a Party Like APCO!

Celebrate the final event of an amazing conference experience by dusting off your dancing shoes and getting the party started!

The evening will begin with a reception in the ballroom foyer.

At 6:45 pm, the main ballroom doors will open where attendees will enjoy a 3-course meal while rocking out to the Paradigm Party Band playing today’s best music and the dance floor will be yours to dominate. This will be an APCO evening you won’t soon forget!

For dinner seating, all tables will be open seating (with the exception of designated reserved tables).

Dress for this event is business casual…attire like khaki pants, slacks, skirts/dresses, as well as short-sleeved polo shirts and long-sleeved shirts. Try to avoid wearing jeans, tennis shoes, T-shirts and sweatshirts.
