Wednesday, March 13, 2024

Greetings IAEE DC Chapter Members and Industry Colleagues,

We are planning some new and different events and fun activities based on YOUR feedback in post-event surveys and comments at our events.

This year, we are planning four top-notch in-person education Programs:

  • We had a highly engaging session in February with event leaders facilitating roundtable discussions on hot topics from Expo! Expo!
  • On Wednesday, May 22, we will present Exhibitor Success Programs to improve your Exhibitor satisfaction scores and retention.
  • On Wednesday, September 18, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 in Maryland, we will cover Security at events.
  • Our Annual Meeting and the State of the Industry, including new analytics from CEIR Reports will be presented in November by IAEE HQ leadership at the Freeman office in Alexandria.

To show appreciation for our Members, we have arranged for a Member Appreciate event on Friday, March 15th with FREE tickets (up to 4 tickets) for the Super Pet Expo at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA. All Show Services has generously donated the free tickets for Friday. All Members in good standing can register to get their free tickets on our website. 

We have several social events planned this year, including a YP event in June, Maryland golf and reception event in August, and our popular Karaoke event in October.

We will continue to offer short virtual learning events, including more Coffee Convos and Tech Transformation Series programs.

I hope that many members and industry colleagues come out on Friday, June 7, to volunteer at A Wider Circle. See below for more information on this wonderful organization and the volunteer opportunity to give back to our local community.

This Chapter is focused on providing forward-thinking, timely education and valuable connections for our members and all event professionals. I welcome your feedback, ideas, and thoughts anytime and hope to see you at one of our many in-person or virtual events this year!

Your IAEE DC Chapter Chair,
