About the ACE Awards

Boasting an attendance of over 800, the ACE Awards is one of the most prestigious business events that takes place annually in our state where the top leaders, executives, and visionaries in the region gather to celebrate the people who are making significant contributions to minority supplier development. At this event, minority business enterprises (MBEs) are honored for their excellent service in the past year as well as corporate members for their commitment to supplier diversity and supporting minority-owned businesses through purchasing contracts.

The evening begins with a VIP Reception from 4:30 pm – 5:15 pm, a General Reception from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The Dinner and Awards Presentation begins at 7:00 pm and the night closes with drinks and networking immediately following the program at 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm.
