IAEE Expo!Expo! 2016 in Anaheim | Empowering Individuals / Strengthening the bridge between Associations


From December 6th -8th together with Mariane, we had the excellent opportunity of joining IAEE'S annual event in Anaheim. Our first activity onsite was our participation at the Exhibitions and Meetings Safety and Security Initiative meeting (read more about EMSSI on the next page).

IAEE means excellence. However David DuBois & Cathy Breden and their team were able to surprise, empower and thrill us: The education sessions were planned to provide the best in thought leadership in key targeted areas including leadership, strategy, design, marketing, management and technology. Unmistakable: "Why Only Is Better Than Best?"; "6 Essential Assets That Are Required for a Volatile, Uncertain, Ambiguous and Complex World", "How to Make Shows More Secure". Just 3 from 70+ remarkable education sessions at IAEE'S Annual Meeting in Anaheim last year.

We can now confirm that Expo! Expo! is indeed the "show for shows." Exhibition and event industry professionals attended this premier show to learn about the latest industry trends and technology, as well as to network with like-minded professionals. We were also very proud that the IELA QUALITY BRAND was represented with four US members at Expo!Expo!: Airways Freight Corporation, Schenker USA, Transit Air Cargo USA and TWI Group.

The last evening in Anaheim was remarkable: David and Cathy invited us to join a private dinner with IAVM, SISO, ESCA, EDPA, EACA, AAPA. Our Host introduced us to the world of North American associations, building the bridge between us, fostering advocacy, boosting networking opportunities and cooperation.

We left Anaheim with new friends and real common projects to develop.

We truly thank David and Cathy for their hospitality. We tank them also for their humanity, visionary approach & passion for the industry. A revolutionary combination of assets that will change not only the world of exhibitions.
