Making it Happen

Welcome to the AlphaGraphics 2017 Annual Conference

Making It Happen reflects the action that's taking place inside the AlphaGraphics Network. Making it Happen with new technologies, new markets to pursue, new opportunities for growth and profit.

Conference registration is your admission ticket to all the fun and festivities: three days to learn new approaches, network with fellow Franchisees and enjoy Walt Disney World® Resort.

The magic begins Wednesday evening with the Welcome Dinner at Epcot® in the American Adventure Rotunda, followed by a dessert buffet under the stars and the amazing fireworks of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

Thursday morning it's the popular Connect Sessions followed by the Opening General Session. You'll see awards presented, have a chance to win Sweepstakes drawings and hear from AlphaGraphics president Aaron Grohs. Plus, there is an energetic keynote from former Disney executive Dennis Snow on how the legendary company continues to Make It Happen every year.

In the afternoon, choose from a multitude of unique training topics focused on agOnline, Sales, Marketing, Financial Management, Operations, agSigns and Leadership. Then it's the first half of the Technology Expo, which includes a social with hors d'oeuvres and drinks. Finally, finish the day relaxing with friends while enjoying the popular Dine-Around at newly renovated Disney Springs™.

Friday's General Session brings more Network updates and awards, then it's on to the remainder of the Tech Expo, and additional training opportunities in the afternoon. At night, explore Walt Disney World® Resort on your own by taking advantage of half-day theme park tickets, or head back to Disney Springs™ for bowling, a movie or to explore the many shops. If you prefer something more laid-back, relax by the Dig Site pool at the Resort.

Your final day begins with a General Session that features our second keynote: an insightful program focused on gaining results for your AlphaGraphics location. Then it's Franchisee-led Roundtable sessions and more training classes. Take a few minutes to rest in advance of the Celebration Ball, which begins with a cocktail reception and ends with presentation of the coveted Franny Award.

Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is named for the legendary Spanish explorer who discovered the Grand Canyon and much of the American Southwest. Conference 2017 is your opportunity to explore new paths for Making it Happen in your AlphaGraphics franchise.
