Global Conferences

Prelude isn't our only way of saying thank you. While Prelude is a tailor-made opportunity specifically for music educators, Global Conferences, organized by ACIS, help you discover new destinations, plan your next group trip or just take a well-deserved getaway. When you travel with us, you can earn opportunities to travel and experience new destinations in style—exclusive tours, gourmet dinners, breathtaking sights.

And while no two conferences are exactly alike, each includes airfare, accommodations, breakfasts, excursions and more! You can even bring a companion to share in your adventures.
