The ACE committee is excited that plans for the upcoming meeting are in full swing! The health and safety of our attendees is at the top of our list as we work to put together another great show. ACE'S is pleased to announce the official tour of Rock of ACEs is Open TODAY!  As always, check our website for up-to-date show details.

Music brings harmony to the world and brings people together.  Something that
Karen Harlow, ACE 2020's Chair, believes we could all use now more than ever! Our theme for the 2020 Atlantic Coast Exposition "ROCK OF ACEs" provides attendees with the opportunity to network and let their hair down.  So pack your bags and head to the beach - we look forward to seeing you there!
