IAEE Announces Three-City Partnership
The International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ (IAEE) announced a special three-city partnership between future host cities of Expo! Expo! IAEE's Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Baltimore, Anaheim and San Antonio. 2014 IAEE Chairperson Skip Cox made the announcement during this year's Annual Business Networking Luncheon and Awards Presentation. The partnership aims to provide a seamless, multi-year Expo! Expo! experience for attendees who are analyzing their return on investment from attending the annual meetings.
"Through their sequential-year hosting agreement of Expo! Expo!, these cities are making a significant contribution above and beyond their host city agreements and are supporting many other IAEE programs throughout the upcoming year," said Cox, president of Exhibit Surveys, Inc. "We are thrilled with this strategic partnership, and we will collaborate to provide attendees with added value for their time thus exceeding their expectations."
IAEE's selection process begins three to four years prior to the event and proposals are requested from visitor/convention bureaus. The submissions are awarded points based on the following criteria: general appeal of venue, management of the sales process, center and housing package, access to air transportation, and level of support toward IAEE's commitment to its constituents, and then extensively reviewed by the IAEE board of directors and staff after which the selected city is announced.
Expo! Expo! IAEE's Annual Meeting & Exhibition gives exhibitions and events industry professionals the opportunity to come face-to-face with decision makers in a unique environment where industry leaders meet with their peers to learn how to increase the profit potential of their organizations' exhibitions and events, to produce more successful events, and to enhance their professional development and business partnerships.
