51st Annual ACME Conference  ●  April 10-13, 2024 

Galveston, Texas  ●  Moody Gardens Hotel & Convention Center


Extended Submission Deadline: October 23, 2023

The Association of Collegiate Marketing Educators (ACME), in conjunction with the Federation of Business Disciplines (FBD), invites faculty, students, and business practitioners to submit your research and pedagogical work for presentation at the 2024 ACME Conference to be held in the beautiful city of Galveston, Texas! ACME is an established academic marketing conference with a collegial atmosphere for professional development, networking, and collaboration. Join us for sharing quality research, engaging teaching ideas, and good fellowship.


Our conference location is a popular tourist destination, offering attractions for every member of the family. Galveston is home to some of the best attractions Texas has to offer, including miles of beautiful beaches along the Bolivar Peninsula, with some of North America’s best bird habitats, the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier amusement park and the Kemah Boardwalk dining and amusement complex a short drive away. Galveston also offers a plethora of unique museums, including The Bryan Museum, Texas Seaport Museum, and Galveston Railroad Museum. Having one of the largest and well-preserved concentrations of Victorian architecture in the country, Galveston allows visitors to explore the island’s rich history by touring one of its popular historic mansions. The conference hotel is a tropical paradise on the Galveston coast, located next door to Schlitterbahn Waterpark and steps from Moody Gardens.

We look forward to seeing you!
