This Year's International DECA Conference

Date: April 29-May 2, 2020

Location: NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE

 

Every year the International Career Development Conference, or ICDC, is the capstone event of the DECA experience. Those who excel at the state level CDC are able to move on to the ultimate challenge and experience at the expansive ICDC, held in 2020 in Nashville, Tennessee. Florida. The exact dates are April 29th through May 2nd. New Hampshire DECA members who were winners in their state level event, are now up against the best of the other 49 states and Canada, Mexico, Germany, China, and more. The conference itself is fantastic, with over 20,000 in attendance, and 145+ from New Hampshire DECA!

Winners from the State Career Development Conference February took on hundreds of competitors in their specific categories. They competed in business presentations, tests, and case scenarios designed to showcase their marketing, management, and entrepreneurial skills. Areas of competition included accounting, retailing, management, marketing, travel and tourism, sports and entertainment, and over 20 more marketing and management areas. In 2019, thirteen New Hampshire High School DECA programs were represented at the ICDC conference, held in Orlando. Students also attended workshops, exhibits, and visited local attractions throughout the Atlanta area.  New Hampshire had many finalists in the written event categories, the marketing series events, and the Virtual Business event categories. We look forward to competing in Nashville in April 2020 and bringing home more trophies!
