The Exhibition Industry Foundation (EIF) announced a great start to its 2011 fundraising campaign. Exactly 100 percent of the International Association Exhibition and Events (IAEE) staff members have made a contribution to support EIF’s mission of ensuring the success of the exhibitions and events industry as the premiere marketing medium by supporting research, promotion and education.
“When I heard that 100 percent of the IAEE staff was supporting EIF, I knew our organization needed to join them,” said Richard Maples, vice president of national sales, Shepard Exposition Services. “As an industry, we must work together to ensure we marginalize any downside so we are well-positioned for the upside.”
Several attendees at Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition 2010 made a tax-deductible average commitment of $275 to EIF.
EIF is seeking individual and organizational donations and is also looking for volunteers to shape the future of the exhibitions and events industry.
