#DECAICDC 2017 Kicks Off in SoCal Style

The 2017 DECA International Career Development Conference kicked off on Wednesday, April 26, with an incredible opening session at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Over 19,000 #DECAICDC attendees enjoyed the opening session show, which kicked off with an incredible FIDM Fashion Show, showcasing the unbelievable talent and creativity of FIDM students. FIDM, a longtime DECA National Advisory Board partner, has tons of awesome opportunities for DECA members interested in pursuing a variety of careers in the fashion industry.

Next, The Voice Season 11 runner up Billy Gilman, helped all attendees celebrate the spirit of #OneDECA with the parade of flags and an incredible performance of “Fight Song.”

Then, #DECAICDC keynote speaker Monique Morrow shared insightful tips on being successful in today’s ever-changing workforce before being awarded the 2017 DECA Entrepreneurial Spirit Award.

Last but certainly not least, Echosmith took the #DECAICDC stage for an incredible concert experience! Every DECA member in the room was on his and her feet as Echosmith closed out the show with their hit song, “Cool Kid.”

The 2017 #DECAICDC opening session was truly one of the best ever, and DECA is so grateful to FIDM, Billy, Monique and Echosmith for helping kick off an amazing four days in Anaheim.
