IAEE    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Outstanding sales and networking opportunity to meet Association Decision Makers.

IAEE invites you to attend a unique sales and networking event to meet key association decision makers at IMEX America 2011. IMEX America is organizing an Association Day on the day prior to the show, which will maximize subsequent attendance at the show from this important market segment. An estimated 200 association buyers are expected to attend the IMEX America Association Day & Evening.

On the evening of Monday, 10 October, the association executives attending the education program will attend an evening function, hosted by IMEX and the Venetian/ Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino. All members of the trade associations* coordinating the Association Day and who are exhibiting at IMEX America are invited, free of charge, to attend this event — the IMEX America Association Evening. This will give exhibiting members the opportunity to meet the anticipated 200 U.S. and international association decision-makers who are expected to attend.

IAEE members exhibiting at IMEX America are able to register for this event at no charge; however, due to the anticipated popularity of the event, a maximum of two people from each exhibiting company may register. We urge you to take advantage of this opportunity, since it will probably be one of the best occasions to meet association buyers face to face.

Association Evening: Key Event Details

Venue: Venetian/ Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino
Date: Monday, 10 October
Time: 7:30-10:30 p.m.
Clients: 200 U.S. and International Association decision makers

TO REGISTER: To register to attend this function, please follow this link which will take you to the ICCA website:

You will be sent an e-ticket for this event from the IMEX America organizers one week prior to the trade show; presentation of this e-ticket is necessary to gain access to the event.

This is a great opportunity, and we look forward to seeing all those of you who are eligible to attend!

*Association Day is being organized by ICCA and ASAE: the Center for Association Leadership in collaboration with AIPC, IAPCO, DMAI, IAEE, PCMA and IACC.
