Top Reasons to Attend IAEE’s Expo! Expo!

Written by: CNTV

While horses are the ‘mane’ attraction in Louisville, Kentucky, this year, the trade show community is stirring up excitement in Derby City. Get ready to saddle up for IAEE’s Expo! Expo! 2022! It’s the place to be for the trade show community and takes place December 13-15 at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville.

Exhibitions and events industry professionals will learn about the latest trends and technology and experience outstanding networking opportunities. 

CNTV has the top ten reasons on why you need to attend the Show for Shows.

#10 – Education

This year’s show is about fun, learning, challenging and shifting your mindset. Use this opportunity to network and advance your professional and personal growth with unique and innovative ideas to conduct business and enhance industry knowledge. 

There’s something for everyone, including educational sessions about balancing friendships and business, sales tips we can learn from “The Princess Bride”, and practical on-camera advice.

Be sure to join us for the following sessions:

#9 – IAEE -TV

You can catch all of the highlights and event coverage from the week through daily episodes of IAEE-TV, produced by CNTV and sponsored by Daytona Beach Ocean Center and Visit Pittsburgh this year. 

#8 – General Session

As we celebrate Carrie Ferenac’s year as Chair of the IAEE Board of Directors, you won’t want to miss her inspiring interview with former professional soccer player and 3-time Gold medalist Lauren Holiday. Lauren, now a mom and married to NBA Jrue Holiday, is also a brain tumor survivor. Don’t miss her incredible story of strength, dedication and desire to make an impact. 

Be sure to stop by the CNTV Live Studio on the show floor!

#7 – TDawg Wellness Wake Up Walk

Start your Wednesday off right with a tribute to Terrence Donnelly. Terrence was a dear friend to many in the trade show community and unexpectedly passed away in July 2019. He enjoyed learning, mentoring and helping others succeed. Since he was always passionate about IAEE and CEIR, the Terrence Donnelly Memorial Health Wellness Event is a wonderful way to honor his memory. Make sure to post your walk on social media and use #tdawgwellness.

#6 – Networking!

Meet up with your industry ‘neigh-bors’! You’ll be able to see old friends and make new ones at Expo! Expo!. From the show floor, educational sessions and more, you can foster collaboration and share ideas while making meaningful connections. You might get a little ‘hoarse’ from all the chit-chatting – so make sure you check out the lobby bar to wet your whistle. Who’s joining CNTV for a cocktail?

#5 – Bourbon

Speaking of the lobby bar…hold your horses! Did you know Louisville is the only city in the world with more than ten distillery tours and home to the Urban Bourbon Trail Tour? Get a kick out of seeing the top landmarks for insta-worthy photos, explore Butchertown and more! 

#4 – Wellness Zone

After a night of Kentucky bourbon, you can head to the Wellness Zone, where you can pony up some zen, rest and relax with your industry peers.

#3 – Churchill Downs

We aren’t horsing around about the Opening Night Reception at Churchill Downs! Experts from the Kentucky Derby Museum help you top off your Louisville experience and create your very own Kentucky Derby hat or fascinator with feathers and all the fanfare.

#2 – Prizes!

Who likes winning – yay or ‘neigh’? Get into the winner’s circle at Expo! Expo! The Kentucky Derby is the theme on the show floor. As part of the Derby spirit, there will be more than $25,000 in prizes given out to attendees! Make sure you join the Expo! Expo! Derby Race and place your bets during the show.
