The International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) will hold its annual Expo! Expo! Dec. 6-8 in Anaheim.

IAEE has slated a full program of 70 sessions “all about Action”. Sessions will include major topics such as safety and security, sales and sponsorship, show design and strategy, career advancement and tech trends and foresight.

“This year we are adding additional flares to the education at Expo! Expo!” said Brooke Pierson, education manager at IAEE.

For the past year, TSNN has celebrated its 20th anniversary with a series of articles profiling leaders in the trade show industry, as well as writing about shows and companies that are a part of the overall rich #tradeshowhistory.

All of this celebrating will culminate Dec. 6-8 at the International Association of Exhibitions and Events Expo! Expo! Annual Meeting and Exhibition in TSNN’s booth (#948) on the showfloor.

Besides a timeline designed by The Expo Group highlighting some of the trade show leaders, trade show history and TSNN’s own 20 years of history, there also will be a trivia contest on the hour asking fun questions about the industry that we all love.
