Expo! Expo!, IAEE Annual Meeting & Exhibition's “show for shows,” is only a week away. Held from December 3-5 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, it's gearing up to be another exciting year for exhibitors and attendees alike.
Whats' Expo! Expo!? Exhibition and events industry professionals attend this premier show to learn about the latest industry trends and technology, as well as network with like-minded professionals. The conference also fosters an environment of thought leadership, best practices and innovative solutions for show organizers to apply in real time for effective results.
Check out the top four things the Aventri team is most excited about at next week's conference.
Marriott International Trends Gallery
With 2020 on the horizon, it's time to start thinking about trends that will impact the event industry. Throughout the morning and early afternoon on Tuesday, Dec. 3 make sure to stop by Marriott International's Trends Gallery in the lower level of South Pacific EF (IAEE Hangout). In this visually engaging gallery, learnings from the Trend Study conducted by Fahrenheit 212 and supported by Marriott International and the PCMA Foundation will showcase five Trends with the potential to dramatically shape the exhibitions and meetings and events industry in the next 5 years to gain a competitive edge and strengthen your show brand.
Two Top General Session Speakers
On top of a great suite of educational sessions, Expo! Expo! has two general session speakers that attendees should definitely make time for:
1. Chris Bashinelli — December 3, 2019 at 1:00 - 2:15 PM
Global Citizenship - Change Your Mind, Change Your World
Global Citizenship means using our everyday work and lives as a vehicle to grow inwardly and thereby, become the best version of ourselves. Becoming a Global Citizen is not about traveling the world, it is about using the challenges within our individual lives to become stronger and more productive members of the world. When we embody the qualities of a Global Citizen – presence, empathy and inspiration – then we can truly inspire those around us.
2. Darleen Santore — December 4, 2019 at 10:45 AM

Humanity Rocks: A Celebration with a Cause
As we know, events are great opportunities for business and for fun. And the latter is even better when it's for a good cause. After the show on Wednesday, Dec. 4, head to the House of Blues Las Vegas at 9 pm to jam out with the band All Request Live. The concert, sponsored by GES, supports Three Square, a local Vegas charity to provide wholesome food to those in need.
