IAEE Celebrates Successful Annual Meeting

Its Expo! Expo! annual meeting — held Dec. 10-12 in Houston — was “highly successful,” according to the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE), which last week announced preliminary attendance figures for the meeting.

Pending an independent audit, the event hosted slightly more than 2,000 attendees and 246 exhibitors. By comparison, in 2010 the meeting attracted 2,068 attendees and 272 exhibitors.

“This year’s Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition is being touted as one of the best meetings we’ve held yet,” IAEE President and CEO David DuBois said in a statement. “I am very proud of how much we’ve accomplished in 2013, and am genuinely looking forward to another great year in 2014.”

Next year’s Expo! Expo! annual meeting takes place Dec. 9-11, 2014, in Los Angeles. For more information, visit www.myexpoexpo.com.
