Atlantic City 2020

Collectively organized event – Showboat Hotel.

In an industry filled with hundreds of car shows and meets emerges a brand new concept, from the minds of some of the top event producers in the scene. The Atlantic City Enthusiast Summit was created to give automotive enthusiasts, car competitors/builders, and industry brands a place to interact throughout an action packed weekend experience. The Showboat Hotel is an iconic landmark on the Atlantic City Boardwalk and offers the ACES team the chance to host a truly unique social gathering that will appeal to all genres within the car community. The car show will take place inside and outside the Showboat, with the main featured area being right on the old casino floors.The event will kick off with a Friday evening rooftop party and meet in the venue’s huge parking garage. The weekend will ultimately culminate into a Final “Lucky 7” vehicles – selected from the different vehicle genres (Modern and Vintage, American and Imported), which will battle head-to-head for cash, bragging rights and the event’s Best of Show award while the rest of the vehicles will compete for several other wildcard awards.

With several restaurants and bars inside The Showboat Hotel, Vegas style entertainment & gambling at the Hard Rock Hotel and Oceans Resort both right next door, the Atlantic City Enthusiast Summit truly does provide a bit of something for everyone all within one convenient and inclusive location.

Aside from the car show competitions, the weekend will feature live entertainment for both the older and younger generations, at the Showboat’s Worship Surf Bar and the former House of Blues club upstairs, as well as Q&A sessions with some respected industry professionals. Enthusiasts may also register for our Tarmac Attack attraction – drivers can register to do a few hot laps at Bader Field, an abandoned airport on the inter coastal waterway just a few blocks from The Showboat.
