DALLAS – The International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) announced recently that Expo! Expo!, its annual meeting and exhibition will be produced as a hybrid event this year to include virtual experiences, as well as face-to-face experiences.
Expo! Expo! is set to be held from December 8-10, 2020 at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Lousiville, Ky.
IAEE also announced that it has selected Swapcard as its platform provider partner to power the virtual experience of the event.
“IAEE underwent an extensive RFP process to select the platform,” noted IAEE president and CEO David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA. “The process began last April and yielded 21 proposals from virtual event platform solution providers. IAEE staff experienced demonstrations from 12 of these platforms, an invaluable learning opportunity for us all. The comprehensive RFP document was shared with the entire IAEE community, including with organizer members as a reference for their own pursuits of virtual event solutions. After much deliberation, we are eager to share with Expo! Expo! attendees the experience Swapcard offers.”
The cost for virtual Expo! Expo! attendees to receive an all-access pass, including all live and on-demand content, will be $299 (USD) for IAEE members. There will also be options for member organizers to attend the marketplace portion of the platform at no charge.
