The ACE Show Planning Committee is excited about this years’ keynote speaker…


Patrick Says, “Do your customers smile when they see you coming? Do they say amazing things about you when you leave? You don’t need more customers, you need more friends! Songwriter and business humorist Patrick Henry believes, “if you can’t create an emotional connection with your customers, you’re going to lose them.” For ten years Patrick was a songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee and a regular performer on the SiriusXM Radio Comedy Channels. During his hilarious and thought-provoking keynote presentation you will laugh, be moved, and discover the answer to a question that will elevate your business… “can making friends become a habit?”.  Appearing at Saturday morning’s Encore Rock Star Awards 

Take advantage of the early bird pricing good through September 30th and register today!
