Wholesaler Central: Ace 2024 Conventions to Celebrate 100 Years

In 2024, Ace Hardware Corp. is celebrating a huge milestone of 100 years—one that few companies can claim. Two of those instances will occur at the biannual conventions.

Ace Hardware hosts two conventions annually that are can’t-miss occasions for retailers and guests. The conventions offer a unique opportunity to explore the latest innovations, trends and products in the hardware industry. A key highlight of the conventions is the chance to connect with industry experts and leaders. Attendees can engage in insightful discussions, gain valuable knowledge and network with like-minded individuals who share a passion for all things hardware. The convention floors will be buzzing with activity, featuring booths and exhibits from leading brands in the hardware industry. From cutting-edge tools and services to innovative building materials, attendees can explore a wide array of products that are shaping the future of the industry.
In addition to the exciting product showcases, the Ace Hardware conventions offer a series of educational sessions and training workshops. Industry experts share their insights on the latest trends, best practices and strategies to stay ahead in the ever-evolving hardware landscape.

The first convention of 2024 is the Ace Hardware Spring Convention, which will be held March 12-14 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. Dallas will welcome over 15,000 Ace Hardware retailers, vendor partners and Ace associates for an action-packed three days, including 1,000 vendor booths, dozens of training sessions, an evening outdoor BBQ party and an invitation to watch the Dallas Mavericks play the Golden State Warriors at an NBA game.

For those unable to attend the spring convention, plans are in full swing for the second biannual convention, including a “100-years” celebration in Ace’s home city of Chicago at McCormick Place in early August. The general session will be unlike any the hardware leader has ever hosted before, followed by a private concert from one of America’s biggest musical acts. Stay tuned for more details about this exciting event, which prospective Ace Hardware retail owners are also invited to and welcome to attend.
