Since the start of 2014, International Federation of Exhibition and Event Services (IFES), a world organization for exhibit supplier companies and country associations, has been driving in the fast lane to achieve its goal to grow its members and to deliver value in membership and supplier unity.
During the first quarter of 2014, the organization has participated in several major events to wave the IFES flag and discuss its mission.
In February 2014, IFES exhibited with pride at EuroShop in Dusseldorf, Germany.
“At EuroShop, the IFES stand served as a home base for many international members who had vibrant discussions and new member inquiries,” exclaimed Peter Theodorides, marketing & public relations committee chair, Vision Expo.
The exhibit was constantly full of people engaged in business conversations. As a result, many new members signed on as IFES members and several signed up to attend the next IFES Global Summit in Delhi, India, on May 30.
Three weeks later, IFES then exhibited at the world famous EXHIBITOR2014 show on Mar. 16-20 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Although an American tradeshow for the exhibition industry, there were attendees from over 26 countries in attendance. International exhibiting is a major hot button for American exhibit managers and suppliers, so interest was high about speaking with an association like IFES to grow their business with international partners.
“The value in IFES membership continues to grow. American exhibit suppliers gain a long arm of support from both EDPA International Chapter and IFES when members at both associations. Networking to find trusted partners worldwide is best achieved when meeting people face to face at major events like EXHIBITOR. Our IFES brand serves to connect people and was well received at this show,” said Voicu Sferdianu, director general, Expo Design System.
Mark your calendars to attend the IFES 2014 Global Summit in Delhi, India on May 30-Jun. 1 this year, and IFES 2015 in Vienna, Austria, set for Jun. 24-26, 2015.
Also…see you again next year at EXHIBITOR2015 in Las Vegas!
