Study Days and Masterclasses

All ACE study days are designed to deliver practical information and skills that you can apply as soon as you return to your workplace. They are delivered in a supportive and engaging environment by speakers and colleagues drawn from the sector and cover all aspects of retail and commercial operations including image sales, publishing, venue hire, copyright and licencing.
 
ACE training events fall into two distinct categories:
 
  • Study Days – peer to peer talks attracting a large attendance from the wider membership where colleagues from the sector freely share information and expertise with delegates, covering new ideas and developments in all relevant topics.
  • Masterclasses – smaller, skills based workshops suitable for Full Members which address the detail of the subject and offer solutions and strategies for delegates’ particular problems and situations.
Above all, ACE training events are value for money, affordable and deliver a great return on investment. Added to this are the invaluable networking and community-building aspects of ACE events which are only found in this environment.
 
At the heart of these peer-to-peer events is both knowledge and experience which is shared openly and generously by our colleagues. For this reason, and for more complex Intellectual Property reasons, please do not ask if we will share speaker presentations as we are not able to do so in almost all cases.
 

Costs for events are as follows. Some premium events will command higher prices.
