Welcome to Clearwater Beach!

Thank you for attending ACCI’s 2018 Annual Conference and bringing your expertise to our gathering. This is a great conference for sharing the latest insights of academic research on consumer well-being, including some of the most pressing issues facing consumers today.

This year’s conference includes a special focus on the importance of advancing research to other consumer organizations and policymakers. Our conference committee has worked hard over the past year to organize this conference with nationally and internationally recognized speakers. The selection of papers and posters for this conference was challenging, but, as a result, attendees will be presented with a high caliber of scholarly research on numerous topics within the broad area of consumer well-being.

You, as members of this historical consumer research organization, have the vision, the knowledge, the wherewithal, and the experience to help us pave our way into the future. Our members are our greatest asset, and we could not accomplish what we do without your support, your leadership, and your expertise. Throughout this conference, we ask you to stay engaged, keep us proactive, and help us celebrate our organization and our members.

Clearwater Beach offers lots of sun and fun! There is time built into the schedule to relax and enjoy the scenery or engage in exciting beach activities. There are numerous restaurants close by so we hope you will take advantage of this time to re-engage with old acquaintances and meet some new ones.  Our goal is for you to make new connections, with people and ideas.

We are here to help you during your stay. If there is anything we can do for you, please do not hesitate to reach out to a staff member, a member of the conference committee, or your board of directors. We want you to leave refreshed, and motivated to recharge your work.
