The Americas Competitiveness Exchange

The Americas Competitiveness Exchange (ACE) is the Premier Economic Development, Innovation and Entrepreneurial Network of the Americas and is one of the leading high–level events of the Organization of American States (OAS). The ACE program is one of the core initiatives of the Inter-American Competitiveness Network (RIAC), for which the OAS serves as the RIAC Technical Secretariat.

ACE is convened by the Organization of Americas States, the RIAC’s Chair Pro Tempore and the Government of the United States, through the U.S. Department of Commerce [the Economic Development Administration (EDA) and the International Trade Administration (ITA)] and the U.S. Department of State/Permanent Mission to the Organization of American States (OAS).

The #ACXchange is organized twice per year and up to 70 senior-level government, business, policy and economic decision-makers are selected from across the Americas and beyond to experience a diverse range of projects, strategic investments, public-private-partnerships and best practices from a region’s economic, innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem.
