ACE Convention & Trade Show 2016Telford International Centre: 8 & 9 March 2016

This  annual  two-day event, the most important in the heritage sector for retailers, publishers, image sales teams, caterers and venue hire managers - in fact all those engaged in income generation, was held at the Telford International Centre on the 8th and 9th March 2016. It was a feast of seminars led by sector experts and a carefully curated trade show that is the biggest of its type in Europe and invaluable for industry professionals.

Delegates were bowled over by the networking opportunities, the breadth of the seminar programme featuring headliners such as the V&A, the National Theatre, Nosy Crow and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Not to mention over 80 trade show suppliers  but that’s not all – why not watch this short film from our 2015 Bournemouth Convention and let our members tell you themselves?
