Hargrove, one of the largest general contractors in the U.S., has announced that ASAE has once again selected them as its tradeshow and meeting partner by finalizing a five-year contract in support of the Association’s tradeshow and meeting portfolio. The Association provides knowledge, education, resources and advocacy to its 22,000 association executives and members.
“Hargrove understands that our meetings and expos are an extension of the ASAE brand,” said Amy Ledoux, senior vice president of meetings and expos for ASAE. “They are focused on ensuring that the experience for our exhibitors and attendees is an extraordinary one. We continue to work with Hargrove because they are a partner in the truest sense of the word and are passionately committed to their promise of excellence.”
The ASAE portfolio includes the Annual Meeting and Expo, Springtime and the Technology Conference and Exposition. Hargrove has supported ASAE for many years and helped launch the original Springtime more than 35 years ago at a Washington, D.C. hotel. Today, the Expo is considered a must-attend for the meetings industry and has been held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center since the building’s opening in 2003. Hargrove not only produces the tradeshow, but also produces more than 20 exhibits on the show floor and a variety of special events. The organization’s annual meeting is attended by more than 5,000 association industry professionals and is scheduled in Dallas in 2012.
“It’s an honor for us to support ASAE,” said Tim McGill, Hargrove CEO. “We’ve always been focused on building a true partnership with the ASAE team, and they know we will do whatever it takes to help them succeed. I think at the end of the day, that’s why we’ve been successful. We look forward to the next five years and supporting their ongoing efforts to further grow and develop the portfolio.”
