AASA AAPEX Event Committee (AAEC)

The AASA AAPEX Event Committee (AAEC) is a forum for representatives from AASA member companies to exchange ideas on ways to improve AAPEX return on investment (ROI) for exhibitors. Members focus on ways to ensure the long-term health of the event. AAEC membership is open to marketing and show management executives from AASA member companies.

The AAEC has worked with exhibitors to define the following objectives for the committee: 
  • Educate: Hear from AAPEX vendors (mdg, Glasgow, Freeman), industry & consumer media, The Expo Group, and CEIR, among others
  • Inform: What’s happening “behind the scenes” in planning for AAPEX
  • Increase Exhibitor ROI: Get the most out of your AAPEX experience; receive data and statistics to help support goals
  • Assist: Exhibitor deadlines and reminders; help pre-show, on-site and post-show
  • Listen: A forum for exhibitors to provide input, voice concerns, make suggestions to improve the show
