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, and 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.

Note: To qualify for a global conference, you must have 20 paying participants on an international trip before July 15, or 25 paying participants before October 15.
