American Cheese Society Annual Conference

38th Annual ACS Conference & Competition in Des Moines – July 29-31

Each year, ACS hosts the foremost educational conference and world-renowned cheese competition in North America. More than 1,300 cheese professionals, purchasers, and influencers from throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe attend to network, sample products, and learn from one another.

In 2021 we’re heading back to Des Moines, Iowa and look forward to reconnecting with our members and cheese community after having to unfortunately cancel the 2020 conference in Portland. More information will be announced later this year.
