The International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) already had the best name for a conference—Expo! Expo!—but they have a very good slogan now, too: “Where the interaction is!” For this IAEE event, taking place December 10-12 in Houston, TX, displaying the latest innovations in event/exhibition management is just the beginning. The technology is important, certainly, but Expo! Expo! has three focuses—education, networking, resources—all pursuing one goal, which is to “keep you competitive and bring greater success to your career, your company, and your events.” The way that IAEE accomplishes this is by making interactivity a core organizing and operating principle.
You can still get into Expo! Expo! as an attendee, but if you’ll be exhibiting there and still don’t have your exhibit planned, there is no one in this industry better equipped to bail you out than CRE Rentals (with expert technologists and the finest trade show convention rentals anywhere). This is the “event of events” for the trade show industry itself, where the “best minds and brightest stars” connect: industry leaders, entrepreneurs, inventors, marketing pros. The course conference program has 80+ offerings, and there are additional expert-led sessions, case studies of best practices, and a mentoring program that matches first-time Expo! Expo!-goers with veteran attendees.
San Diego International Auto Show
The 2014 version of the San Diego International Auto Show is angling to set a record for the greatest number and variety of new vehicles under a single roof, namely 400 from 36 different world manufacturers. We’ll see what the Guinness Book of World Records says about that, but there are a few things that are sure bets: There is not a doubt in the world that the new, 2014 model-year vehicles will be overflowing with the latest high-technology components to further refine the driving experience. (If you haven’t shopped for cars in a few years, connecting your iPad or smartphone to the stereo system via Bluetooth isn’t new. So what is new? Go to the show!) As an indication of the vehicular variety you can expect, this year’s show devotes some 15,000 square feet to exotics alone, with cars from Maserati, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini and other top-end makers.
There’s a lot more to do than just look at cars. It’s a family-oriented event all five days, but Sunday, January 5, the final day of the event, is officially Family Day. Children 12 and under will be admitted free with a paying adult, and there will be new, fun interactive games, family entertainment, and Camp Jeep Kid Zone with kid-sized Jeep vehicles available to drive indoors. There’s something else that’s nice for kids, grandkids, and future generations: The auto show has led the way in “green auto consciousness” and, once again, will feature the Think Blue Eco-Center with the latest, greatest eco-smart ideas, environmentally responsible designs, and fuel-saving technologies.
