ACE Announces “The Gold Standard” Conference Theme, Opens Registration for 37th Annual Event

American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) hosting its industry conference August 14-16, 2024, in Omaha, Nebraska

The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) has opened registration for its 37th annual “The Gold Standard” themed conference taking place this summer starting Wednesday, August 14, through Friday, August 16, at the Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District. Just as gold medals signify hard work and world-class performance, the ACE conference will showcase the ingenuity, strategies and successful collaborations of the ethanol industry. Join us as we celebrate the pursuit of greatness and strive to raise the bar for a more sustainable future.

"ACE is devoting considerable time, effort and resources to help ethanol producers and the farmers supplying them become the gold standard when it comes to producing low-carbon fuel," said Brian Jennings, ACE CEO. "We invite ethanol producers and industry members to join us in Omaha this summer to discover how they can benefit from the work ACE is undertaking to enhance the value and demand for ethanol."


"For nearly four decades, biofuel stakeholders have used the ACE conference as a platform to discuss the latest technological advancements and market updates, as well as the industry's future direction and ambitions," said Katie Muckenhirn, Vice President of Public Affairs at ACE. "Our industry is setting the benchmark for sustainable energy solutions, and we're crafting an event agenda that covers topics designed to shape the continued success of this industry."

The conference provides two days of general sessions. This year’s event will cover topics like maximizing tax credit opportunities under the Inflation Reduction Act, the retail marketplace for E15 and E85, farm-to-biofuel carbon market collaborations, trade developments and more. The conference also offers breakout sessions with subjects falling under three different tracks: leadership and management, technology and carbon.

For over 35 years, the ACE conference has focused on the people of the ethanol industry and their priorities — an event where ethanol producers meet with retailers, policymakers, researchers and other industry members. Stay tuned for more agenda details and event announcements over the coming months.
