I would love to see a poll of how many members would like to go back to Orlando or Vegas or another city.Maybe it would be nice to see the AAPC to take a poll to see how many members would like to go back to Orlando, Fla.

As most have to foot the cost of this event in some way, shape or form. Location is everything! And while I understand the comment about "not wanting to be in Milwaukee in March" - this years conference is at the end of April, first part of May!
We've had both regional and national conferences in Nashville. Last time we were there, there were so many attendees with allergy/asthma issues because the hotel is basically one big terrarium, that I'm thinking we won't be going back! It's lovely, but I lived with my inhaler all week.Why not Nashville!
It shows under "Items" that is starts April 5th of 2020 and is in Orlando! Super excited about this, my family and I are going to stay the week after Healthcon and going to Disney World!
I think it's awesome when they do events located at a resort or some sort of amusement park! My family and I are just going to stay for a week following HEALTHCON 2020 and go to Disney World! Nice and cheap to do it all in one go and get a family vacation out of it as well! Yay HEALTHCON 2020!!!Yes, we're back in Orlando for HealthCon 2020. Although I do understand that there's a religious conflict for some, it's very difficult for AAPC to navigate all the holidays, seasons, vacations, school events, and month-ends that we will surely bump up against no matter when it's scheduled. They really do their best, and also have to work around the availability of the venues.
That having been said, it's my understanding that AAPC is looking into other cities moving forward. I don't have the official word (why would I?), but I had heard that the contracts with Vegas and Disney were up. I wouldn't be surprised if 2021 was already in the books, given the need for planning and preparation; vendor support and contract negotiation for the hotel and all. I just don't have any insight.
Although I have heard complaints about Disney, it's way cheaper than Vegas, cleaner, safer, better for families and frankly easier to get around. And I"m looking forward to getting out of Maine next April, that's for sure.
