The Impact of Face-to-Face Events

Our focus as a tradeshow and enthusiast event organizer is to build strong, long-lasting partnerships with industry stakeholders with the understanding that together we create a successful, productive marketplace.  Now more than ever, our focus turns to our customers as we have an obligation to lead the way for our industry to get back to business and provide you with a safe and productive environment to do business. 

Additionally, the events business has a direct impact on economies and job creation. The events business brings revenue to local economies as Attendees spend money traveling to the location, filling hotel rooms, utilizing local transportation options (taxis, ride-sharing, car services, public transportation), and filling local establishments like restaurants and bars.


Addressing health and safety

Our team is following the government guidelines issued by the CDC and state and local officials with regards to the ongoing situation of the coronavirus/COVID-19.  Ensuring the safety of all exhibitors, attendees, and staff at our events is our top priority.

We understand that ensuring exhibitors and attendees feel safe returning to events will be a critical first step in delivering an exceptional experience for you. We are working with SISO and AEO, two leading event organizer associations to further create new high standards in safety in events.

We are working as a collective industry to enable events and trade shows to open safely by following essential safety guidelines that adhere to the best medically backed scientific practices for the safety and well-being of attendees, once stay-at-home orders are lifted. Additionally, we are working with our travel partners, venues, hotels, and the Convention & Visitors Bureaus in the cities our events operate in to protect your health and provide you with a safe and productive environment for you to conduct business. 

Our precautionary measures begin in our event planning stage and continue through your arrival at the event and a post-event review to protect all of our customers with the support of our partners and contractors including:

I. Ensure personnel and personal safety
II. Enablement of physical distancing
III. Increase health and safety measures
IV. Implement crowd control
V. Communication of policies and changes 

We want to help you get back to business through the support of live events while still ensuring you can fully enjoy the face-to-face experience that allows you to feel safe and have peace of mind.
