We’ve heard your feedback! As a result, this year’s ACE Awards will be an event to remember. Based on your input, we have moved the ACE Awards to Thursday night and integrated a formal dinner as well as some new elements of fun. We encourage you to bring a personal friend, spouse, or family member that will enjoy celebrating the accomplishments of you and your colleagues.
Casino Game Night Please plan to arrive early to the Detroit Marriott to enjoy our ACE Awards casino — complete with all of your classic table games. Proceeds will go towards training minority businesses across the state of Michigan. Have fun, win prizes, and network with the Michigan business community.
Hall of Fame
As the key driver of minority business development for over 39 years in Michigan, MMSDC is the home of the Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame. We created the Hall of Fame to ensure that iconic Michiganders are celebrated for the indelible imprint they’ve made on minority businesses that are driving the state’s economy while empowering communities that are often left behind. This prestigious honor recognizes those who have made a positive transformational impact on Michigan’s minority businesses, including devoted government and community leaders as well as iconic MBEs and corporate leaders. This year’s inductees are Hank Aguirre, Founder of Mexican Industries, and Ron Hall, Sr., former President of MMSDC and Chairman of Bridgewater Interiors. Purchase your tickets today to participate in this special night.
Event Style: Pre-show reception followed by a sit-down dinner and an afterglow.
Attire: “Casino Festive” – Wear red, black, white, or your favorite standout attire.
