First Timers

Have you heard about Expo! Expo! but never experienced it for yourself? 

Are you a new IAEE member?

Are you a show organizer looking for new strategies and trends to integrate into your own event?

If so, you qualify to participate in IAEE’s First Timer or Hosted Buyer Program.  If you are a new IAEE exhibition or event organizer member as of January 2016 AND have never attended Expo! Expo!, you cannot miss this opportunity to attend as IAEE’s guest and immerse yourself in the networking events and education sessions that will help guide your strategic planning process for the upcoming year.

Qualified attendees who register by 14 November 2016 will be eligible for a complimentary meeting registration featuring an orientation with industry leaders about how to maximize your experience at Expo! Expo!
