Hear What Attendees are Saying About ACE

"This was the first time I attended ACE. It was a phenomenal experience. I tried to make the most of the short conference and attended the young members scavenger hunt where I got to meet many other first-time attendees. I presented at a professional session and wandered the exhibition hall during my off-hours. In the evenings, I bounced around to various networking receptions. It was an exhausting but rewarding experience that was also a lot of fun."
