ACES is constantly exploring new ways to enhance the virtual conference experience, especially around networking.

Based on survey feedback from conference attendees, we are introducing an opportunity for casual networking and community-building interactions this year.

Welcome to regional networking meet-ups on Whova, the conference app. These regional meet-ups seek to provide a relaxed environment for you to connect, share experiences, and expand your professional networks beyond your specific niche within the editing industry. We invite you to join us.


Go to the VCON24 meet-up page to see what region you're in.

See the schedule at a glance to find when your region meets.

How to get into a meet-up

If you plan to attend ACES VCON24 and you want to attend a meet-up, we encourage you to sign up as soon as Whova is open. You will get an invitation to join about two weeks prior to the start of the conference.

  1. Log in to Whova.
  2. Navigate to the Community tab.
  3. RSVP to your corresponding geographical region. Space is limited to 20.

Meet-up Groups

Meet-ups have been established for conference-goers located in the United States and Canada, in part in recognition of the call's time zone. Sort yourselves. Note that this information is subject to change. Please refer to the Whova conference app for the final schedule.
