More than 60 representatives from 30 American Chambers of Commerce (AmChams) across Europe attended the annual AmChams in Europe (ACE) Best Practices Conference in Belgrade, Serbia, on October 16-19, 2019.


The purpose of ACE is to provide an opportunity for the community to come together, exchange best practices and knowledge, and discuss relevant and shared issues impacting AmChams and their members. The year’s conference focused on the role and challenges facing AmChams.

The conference also included the annual ACE Create Network Award ceremony, with this year’s award presented to AmCham Belgium for its innovative #MemberMonday social media campaign, which was designed to promote better engagement with its members through posting videos that help introduce the AmCham community. The ACE Creative Network Award was established in 2014 with the aim of incentivizing AmChams to share creative initiatives and projects, for the benefit of AmChams throughout the ACE network, with the intention of fostering an exchange of innovative ideas.

AmChams in Europe serves as the umbrella organization for 45 AmChams from 43 countries throughout Europe and Eurasia. Each year, the ACE Best Practices Conference is hosted by one of the AmChams in Europe members and focuses on facilitating the exchange of best practices and knowledge among the representatives of various AmChams across Eurasia.

Special thanks to AmCham Serbia for hosting of this year’s conference, to AmCham Slovenia, who runs the ACE Secretariat, and to the ACE Executive Committee for the superb organization.
