ACE Educational Content

The ACE Summit Advisory Board, in partnership with other organizational contributors and thought leaders in the healthcare capital investment industry, develops the educational content for the ACE Summit & Reverse Expo.

Educational content is created to meet continuing education (CE) accreditation standards for the American Institute of Architects (AIA), International Facilities Managers Association (IFMA), Certified Healthcare Facility Manager (CHFM), Institute of Supply Management (ISM), and the Professional Development Hours for Engineers (PDH).

The ACE Summit is the premier healthcare capital investment event for educational offerings, featuring state-of-the-art, multi-track, and multi-disciplinary learning all contained within 2.5 days, and all in one location.

The ACE Summit sincerely values your opinion on the educational content offered at the event. We invite you to submit suggestions for educational tracks, topics, and speakers to Taylor Stapleton for consideration for the 2021 ACE Summit & Reverse Expo by June 15, 2020.
