For Your Safety: Your safety, well-being, and event experience has always been the top priority of the ACE Summit & Reverse Expo. Click here to view a full list of the safety enhancements being implemented at the 2021 ACE Summit.
Welcome to the ACE Summit! We look forward to hosting you at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate in February. First, we want to address what is at the forefront of everyone’s mind: Your Safety. In coordination with the Omni, local and state officials and the CDC, we have made several enhancements to the 2021 Summit with your health and wellness in mind. Among the changes that will most impact you:
- Including longer breaks between sessions to allow time for hotel staff to sanitize conference rooms
- Placing hand sanitizer stations at all entry points, in all conference rooms and continuous sanitizing of expo hall surfaces
- Offering a wellness attendant onsite to focus on attendee safety.

Atlanta was a great home for ACE but we made the move to Orlando for a few reasons: 1) the uniqueness of these events requires a hotel property that facilitates experiences that foster networking, 2) the Omni conference facilities provide outstanding space to conduct education that wasn’t possible with the Westin and 3) well, it’s Florida….in February.
Here is what you can expect at the 2021 ACE Summit:
We’re here with you every step of the way. From planning, to registration, to assistance with travel, we are here to help. Among the many personal touches you get from us, you will always receive an official planning email from the ACE Summit to finalize your preparation. This will include finalized attendee lists, Facility Data Reports, Reverse Expo Maps, and agenda announcements.
