Virtual Conference FAQs
What is included with my virtual registration?
Your virtual conference registration includes live access to all of the plenary content from the Annual Conference and Pre-Conference. It also includes this year’s conference box with an ACBC T-Shirt and campfire mug as well as several practical resources. It also includes five breakout session slots, each with multiple options. Some of these will be pre-recorded for this year’s conference and some will be livestreamed from Charlotte.
Can I watch the virtual conference with a group?
Each attendee for the virtual conference will need a unique registration. While you are welcome to watch the sessions as a group, please be sure each person is registered individually. Group discounts are available and we are developing a large-group package for churches. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Will I have access to a conference bookstore? How about exhibitors?
We are making preparations to have an online bookstore for our virtual attendees. You’ll also have opportunities to connect with our exhibitors online during the conference.
Do I have to watch the conference live? Can I watch it later?
All virtual sessions will be available until midnight October 10th (the Sunday following the conference). You can watch any sessions you registered for until then.
Can I stay at a hotel other than the ones listed on the website?
Yes. We have chosen the hotels listed on our website because they are within 10 – 20 mins of the conference location, and we were able to negotiate special rates. Additionally, if there is anything that would cause the event to not take place you will be taken care of. There are certainly more hotels, and further afield, but they do not offer the conference rates and we can’t predict availability.
Are there airport-to-hotel travel options provided?
ACBC cannot arrange transportation but the airport offers numerous transportation options.
Where should I park?
All the hotels have parking if you are staying at one of them. Our venue (Hickory Grove Baptist Church) also has parking onsite.
What is a “session?”
A session at ACBC typically includes worship and a plenary talk.
Is the conference wheelchair accessible?
The campus of Hickory Grove Baptist Church is wheelchair accessible.
Is reserved seating available?
Reserved seating is only provided to those who require sign language interpretation. If you have a disability and require special assistance, please contact us.
Will session or day passes be available?
My question isn’t listed above—how can I get an answer?
