The 77th annual ABCA Convention is scheduled for January 6-10, 2021. For the first time in history, the event will be fully virtual meaning that you can get a front row seat to the World's Largest Baseball Convention from wherever you are located! More than 7,000 coaches are once again expected to take part in the Convention.
The event will feature clinics across the main clinic hall, Youth Coaches Session and Expo Theater just like an in-person event. Furthermore, attendees will be able to participate in live post-clinic Question & Answer Sessions with the speakers as well as Hot Stove Roundtable Discussions.
The ABCA Trade Show
, which typically engulfs 200,000 square feet with baseball exhibits, will now be able to be accessed digitally as well so that attendees can still check out the latest products and innovations from vendors and chat directly with exhibitors! Exhibitors will be running show specials so that attendees can snag deals on products and some products will be raffle giveaways for attendees as well! Coaches will be able to schedule meetings with exhibitors and connect both via video and text chats throughout the show.
Virtual networking opportunities for coaches to connect with fellow ABCA members will also be a feature of the ABCA Virtual Convention! Coaches can message back-and-forth or create their own video meet ups with friends and coaching peers throughout the event.
The tentative Virtual ABCA Convention schedule is below. The schedule is subject to change and all times listed are Eastern Time Zone. We will be announcing the clinic speaker order during the second week of December! Registration for the 2021 ABCA Virtual Convention is now open!
