The International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ (IAEE) announced it will feature a series of emerging technology solution use cases at Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition to be held December 11-13, in New Orleans, La. These Tech Use Cases have been proven in the exhibitions and events marketplace, and aim to give exhibition and event producers an opportunity to explore a wide range of solutions that answer the challenges they face in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing landscape.
The IAEE Technologies Committee is comprised of technology domain experts and exhibition organizers who provide regular insight and feedback on current and emerging technology trends that have the potential of disrupting the exhibitions and events industry. Members of the committee identified the following key areas of interest for the case studies: Attendee Experience and Engagement; Back of House (Venue Related Tech); Lead Generation (ROI); Learning Technology; Marketing (Attendee Acquisition); Networking, Revenue Creation; Security and Compliance; and Sponsorships.
“The IAEE Technologies Committee wanted to focus on use cases that are currently impacting the exhibitions and events industry, and how they may impact the industry within the next three to five years,” said IAEE President & CEO David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA. “These hands-on case studies will provide relevant, usable information about new technology applications within the industry.”
