EDPA to Hold Two Meetings at EXHIBITOR2013
The Exhibit Designers & Producers Association (EDPA) will be holding two special meetings for its members and guests at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center this month during EXHIBITOR2013.
The first meeting being held is EDPA's International Chapter Breakfast Meeting: "EMERGING MARKETS That Really Should Be On Your Radar Screen". This meeting will be held, in partnership with Exhibitor Media Group, on Tuesday, March 19th from 8:00am to 9:30am in the Food Service Area (far right of exhibit hall) of Mandalay Bay South Convention Center where a continental breakfast will be served. Tom Kallman, President and CEO of Kallman Worldwide, and his colleague (and sister) Ann Kallman, the Director of Kallman's Creative Services department will be presenting during this meeting.
They will discuss opportunities for U.S. exporters in some of the up-and-coming but lesser thought-of regions and countries of the world. You can also expect to learn new ideas, encouraged by new opportunities, and reinforced by examples of other EDPA companies associated who are living proof that the savvy well-prepared exhibit house of the future knows no borders. Join Tom Kallman, the International Chapter Committee and fellow International Chapter Members for this informative presentation & global trend conversation.
This meeting is free of charge to all current 2013 EDPA International Chapter member companies, otherwise $95.00 for all other EDPA members. Non-member fee is $195.00. All are welcome to join but reservations are a must by Wednesday, March 13th. To secure your spot, please email Member Services Coordinator, Melissa Nemitz, @ MNemitz@edpa.com or call her @ (203) 899-8491.
Next, EDPA will hold the Portable/Modular/Hybrid Summit: "What's Happening in the Portable/Modular/Hybrid Trenches", on Tuesday, March 19th from 3:45pm to 4:30pm in the Food Service Area (far right of exhibit hall) of Mandalay Bay South Convention Center. EDPA is partnering with Exhibitor Media Group to make this event happen.
Come find out what's new, what's selling and what you should be selling so that you do not miss out on new opportunities within the Portable/Modular/Hybrid segment of the market. Join us for this informative session led by Kevin Carty of Classic Exhibits. The discussion will include design, graphic and production trends as it relates to this continually growing and evolving segment of the Tradeshow Industry. A panel discussion will follow with experts from Exhibit Design, Graphics, Distribution and Manufacturers, including Katina Rigall of Classic Exhibits, David Brown of Optima Graphics, Greg Beach of Atlantic Exhibits, Chris Griffin of Trade Show Supply and Anita Mitzel of GraphiColor Exhibits.
The Portable/Modular Summit is free of charge to all current 2013 EDPA member companies and Non-members. Please RSVP to Melissa Nemitz @ MNemitz@edpa.com or (203) 899-8491.
