EXHIBITOR Magazine and HCEA Announce Co-location Partnership
HCEAInnovate to Co-locate with EXHIBITORLIVE, Feb. 25 - Mar. 1
EXHIBITOR Magazine, the leader in trade show and corporate event marketing education, and the Healthcare Convention & Exhibitors Association (HCEA) announce a new partnership to co-locate HCEAInnovate during EXHIBITOR's annual EXHIBITORLIVE conference. HCEA will launch a new innovative education and networking experience with HCEAInnovate.
HCEAInnovate will be held on Sunday, February 25, 2018, to coincide with the opening day of EXHIBITORLIVE, the 30th Annual Professional Development Conference for Trade Show and Corporate Event Marketers, in Las Vegas. HCEA will also continue to hold its annual reception during EXHIBITORLIVE, now scheduled on Monday, February 26.
HCEA and EXHIBITOR are recognized as global leaders in the trade show and event industry, each providing world-class educational opportunities, solutions, networking, and research. The partnership was first announced at HCEAConnect, the association's premier annual educational event, held last week in Chicago.

"This is an exciting opportunity for HCEA members to participate in both events simultaneously," said Amy Lotz, HCEA executive director. "This partnership will help healthcare exhibitors and exhibition and meeting organizers to hone in on HCEA-specific educational offerings and stay up-to-date as the healthcare industry continues to evolve, while at the same time rounding out their broader training needs through EXHIBITORLIVE's 180+ sessions and workshops."
"We are thrilled to bring together two active communities of trade show and event marketing professionals for collaboration and networking," said Dee Silfies, chief learning strategist for EXHIBITORLIVE. "Each conference will maintain its own unique programs, so together we will be able to offer a greater range of opportunities for all participants."
HCEAInnovate attendees will also receive a free VIP pass to attend all three days of EXHIBITORLIVE's Exhibit Hall, the largest exhibition of trade show and event suppliers in North America. For information about EXHIBITORLIVE, go to www.ExhibitorLive.com.
