ACE Cancels 2020 Exposition, Will Hold Virtual Event Instead

July 13, 2020

ACE 2020, scheduled to take place October 8-10, 2020 in Myrtle Beach, S.C., has been canceled. Event organizers are working on planning a virtual event with networking and sales opportunities.  

The ACE Planning Committee works tirelessly to offer a terrific show for operators and suppliers alike and we are proud of the show’s success in recent years.  After careful consideration regarding the pandemic and the health and safety of everyone in our industry family, we have made the difficult decision to cancel ACE 2020 which was scheduled for October 8-10 in Myrtle Beach, SC. Please read through the details below regarding payments, refund options, and hotel rooms.

The GOOD NEWS! ACE is working on details for a 2020 Virtual Edition:  Education with Networking & Sales opportunities – all are important benefits of our Expo! Keep an eye out for detailed information - COMING SOON!
