2010 Annual Conference

2010 Post-Conference

2010 Annual Conference - "Recognizing Excellence in Business Education"
June 25 - 28, 2010 - JW Marriott at L.A. Live - Los Angeles, California

March 2014: Due to the transition to this newer website during Fall 2013, the download links for presentations have been broken. We are working as fast as we can to re-upload and re-link all presentations. Our apologies for any inconvenience. If there is a presentation that you wish to view or download, send an email to and the files will be sent over.

Thank you for making the 2010 ACBSP Annual Conference in Los Angeles one of the most successful conferences to date. You've helped us set a new conference record. Final numbers show 610 individuals from educational institutions. This breaks all previous records, including 568 in 2009 and the all time record of 598. The total number in attendance this year, including sponsors, exhibitors and others, equals 693.

Despite budget cuts that we know those of you in higher education were facing this year and will continue to face, 610 individuals recognized the value of the ACBSP conference and the educational sessions offered, and kept it on your calendars. We thank you for that and invite you to look through some of the photos taken at the conference, as well as download and presentations you may have missed. We hope to see you next year in Indianapolis!
