The ACCE Annual Convention is Coming to DSM USA


February 13, 2018


The Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) 2018 Annual Convention is coming to Greater Des Moines (DSM). This is a huge deal and a real coup for our region. DSM will have the platform to show off all the great things going on here to more than a thousand Chamber of Commerce professionals from places as far away as Ireland and as cosmopolitan as Toronto.

Established in 1914, ACCE serves more than 7,500 Chamber of Commerce professionals, 1,300 Chambers and hundreds of additional businesses and organizations. The ACCE Annual Convention is an industry leader in professional development, peer connectivity and sharing of best practice.  

In other words, the Annual Convention is your one-stop-shop for all things progress.  

The host city is selected to reflect that. Chosen because of our reputation as a leading, thriving and forward focused region, DSM is honored to host the 2018 ACCE Annual Convention. It provides each of us with a unique opportunity to make connections and promote what makes DSM different. With more than 1,000 influencers from around the world in attendance, the Annual Convention is an outlet with an international reach. 

National Stage in DSM

The international stage really will be in our backyard July 17-20, 2018.  

What makes DSM different is our unique willingness to think boldly and work in partnership to compete with the big boys. The fact the ACCE Annual Convention will be in DSM is an indicator of that. Now it’s time to show what DSM has to offer and make this the biggest and best Annual Convention chamber professionals have seen.

Captive Audience

One of the reasons attendees are coming to DSM is to explore and learn how we successfully partner as a community. One way to get your name in front of this influential audience is through sponsorship. An event on the scale of the ACCE Annual Convention provides an opportunity to showcase what makes DSM different. It’s a great way to communicate the work you do on home turf to a key and influential audience.

Sponsorship opportunities come in a variety of levels. Find one that’s right for you and ensure your name is attached to the hottest ticket in town.  

Let’s partner and show what makes DSM different.  

Renowned as the largest annual gathering of people who work for and with chambers of commerce, the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) Annual Convention is coming to DSM July 17-20, 2018.
