ACE2018: 20 Subsidised Places Available

Bookings are now open for the ACE Conference and Trade Show to be held in Brighton on 1 and 2 March 2018. The annual ACE Conference is an unmissable networking and learning opportunity for anyone involved in income generation in the cultural sector, offering the chance to meet and share ideas with colleagues, learn about best practice, and hear the latest thinking in the field of cultural commerce.

This year ACE is offering 20 subsidised Conference places to smaller venues, at £125 + VAT per person. The places, worth £370 at full price, cover two full days’ attendance at the Conference and Trade Show, including all sessions, refreshments and the Gala Dinner.

The offer is on a first-come-first-served basis to staff from organisations that are members of ACE and have a commercial turnover of less than £150k (excluding admissions). The offer is limited to one delegate per organisation, and does not include travel or accommodation.

ACE will be covering the full cost of the discount, ensuring smaller museums have an equal opportunity to attend the Conference and benefit from the fantastic learning and networking it offers.

The 2018 Conference is extra special as it marks the 40th anniversary of ACE. Managing Director Jill Fenwick says, “The 2018 ACE Conference is our most ambitious to date and celebrates our 40th anniversary with our biggest trade show yet, a rich seminar programme and a new two year residency at the Brighton Centre. We want everyone, regardless of resource, to come and join the celebrations in Brighton. The ACE community is fantastic, the sector is more innovative and creative than ever and 40 years is a great achievement .... let's party like its 1978!”.
