Exhibitions Mean Business Campaign Opens Registration for Exhibitions Day Legislative Fly-in, June 6-7 in Washington D.C.
The Exhibitions Mean Business campaign has officially opened registration for its highly-anticipated annual legislative fly-in, Exhibitions Day. Taking place June 6-7, industry professionals from across the U.S. will convene in Washington D.C., to hold dialogue with members of Congress around key issues impacting the exhibitions industry and the positive impact it has on the U.S. economy.
Exhibitions Day was established to serve as a platform to engage in uninterrupted, one-on-one dialogue with members of Congress. Over the past 3 years, hundreds of industry members have joined the Exhibitions Mean Business campaign on Capitol Hill to hold these informational and educational conversations.
“House and Senate representatives are central to the review of policies that have a direct and indirect effect on our local economies,” said IAEE president and CEO David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA. “As they make critical decisions that impact business travel and international business activities, it is important we give them all the facts and potential implications so federal lawmakers can make the most informed decisions that are in the best interest of our economy.”
“Face-to-face marketing is a critical component to the marketing mix of hundreds of thousands of companies in our economy from start-ups to Fortune 100,” said Exhibitor Media Group president Randal Acker. “The fact is that exhibitions do indeed mean business for so many in our economy, and who better to tell the story than the various stakeholders that are living it every day.”
