Where the Vending Industry Meets on the East Coast

About Us

our history

With its beginning in 1955, the convention and exhibit attracts attendees from across the United States. The focal point of ACE is the two-day trade show featuring suppliers to the vending, office coffee and food service industry. Utilizing the Embassy Suites Hotel in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the exhibit attracts all the major industry suppliers of product, equipment and services.

Quality educational programs address the most pertinent industry issues which run in conjunction with the exhibit and training school for maintenance on machines.

Each evening, there are social events with an opportunity for further networking with peers. These events are held at Myrtle Beach attractions and are open to all registered attendees for the low, low registration fee. If recreational activities are of interest, Saturday's corn hole tournament is not to be missed!

Known as the convention that offers exhibitors the best return on investment, ACE is a family-oriented event which welcomes participation by operators, suppliers and their guests from all across the country.
