MPINCC ACE19: Your ACE Story

MPINCC ACE19: Your ACE Story

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

Moscone West, San Francisco

Story and innovation will be front and center at ACE19. While we focused our re-imagination on the expo floor experience, we infused the conference with greater engagement and a desire to showcase all our stories. From our social media engagement, this registration site, through to the day of event experience, we hope you appreciate our re-imagined ACE19!

Education is always an important and foundational element of ACE. Similar to previous years, ACE19’s morning is all about education, with engaging sessions on such diverse topics as:

  • State of the Industry
  • ADA: What’s F&B got to do with it?
  • In Case of Emergency: How Your Mobile Device Can Save Your Life
  • Lessons Learned: Experiences from the Group Sales Trenches
  • The Rise of Conversational Presenting
  • What Story do you Tell?
  • Inclusion: Beyond the Law for Meeting Professionals

We are partnering with sli.do this year as one of multiple tools we’re leveraging to infuse the education sessions with increased interactivity. Whether it’s an audience engagement tool, throw-able microphone, or alternative seating design, we want our attendees to be active participants in our education sessions. Looking to create the unexpected on a budget? We will be showcasing unique session seating options, leveraging standard venue furniture to inspire & engage.

This year’s General Session & Family-Style Lunch, will feature Brent Bushnell, CEO and co-founder of Two Bit Circus, a Los Angeles-based experiential entertainment company (but don’t hold that LA bit against him, he’s a Bay Area native). Brent is an expert in the art of connection and experiential engagement. He is passionate about creating new ways to tell stories by capturing people’s hearts and minds with new technologies and using play and spectacle to inspire the next generation of inventors.

After lunch, we’ll explore our re-imagined expo floor featuring four neighborhoods, experiential activations, networking alley and our new Micro-Ed stage featuring bite-sized education presented by our landmark exhibitors and guest speakers via silent disco headsets. The expo floor will showcase the brand stories of our exhibitors with the creation of four neighborhoods – Outdoor Lifestyle, Downtown Chic, Wine & Dine, and Tech Playground – each with their own personality and unique engagement opportunities. Speaking of engagement, our app will include tips & hints on what engagement tools exhibitors will be leveraging so attendees can seek out those raffles, games and sweet treats & libations throughout the expo floor!
