IAEE Now Accepting Applications for the 2014 Top Public Events
The International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ (IAEE) Public Events Council will be taking applications until 15 September 2014 for its Top Public Events Recognition Program, which recognizes best practices in the business-to-consumers segment of the exhibitions and events industry.
"The Public Events Council is excited to once again present the opportunity to recognize those consumer events with innovative and sound business practices, as well as exceptional customer service and attendee satisfaction," says Public Events Council Chairperson Bob Morgan, general manager, Dulles Expo Center. "New this year, is the opportunity for public event venues, exposition and convention centers, to nominate their own client events. This will give the venues the chance to recognize their top event producers. The form this year is shorter and simpler than in the past, and the winner will be announced during Expo! Expo! IAEE's Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Los Angeles."
New for 2014: Venues may nominate or sponsor an event held in their facility. The venue pays the application fee upon submission and receives recognition if the event is selected. To enter an event, go to
www.iaee.com/recognition/top-public-events or contact email@example.com for the application and entry forms. A small entry fee for members and non-members is required.
Events will be judged by an impartial panel of consumer event experts on specific event criteria and general areas such as demonstrated sound business practices, stability and exceptional customer service. Testimonials and photos/videos of the event are welcome to enhance the application.
Winners will be recognized at the annual awards luncheon held during Expo! Expo! IAEE's Annual Meeting & Exhibition 2014 on 9-11 December in Los Angeles, CA.
