IMS Technology Services, an award-winning provider of event staging and systems integration solutions, and Alliance Exposition Services, the only nationwide General Service Contractor, focusing exclusively on smaller to mid-size events, have announced a new partnership to provide a single point of contact for managers of small to mid-sized shows to coordinate all event audio visual and production needs as well as show and exhibitor management services.
The tradeshow management market typically focuses on the large and mega shows that fill convention centers, leaving a professional show management void for smaller shows that can fit into a ballroom but need the same services. IMS works with many of these clients and is well-positioned to bring this needed service to those shows. Alliance clients will benefit from the addition of an experienced production team that will streamline and enhance all event audio visual, production, creative, and content services.
“We have changed the model for show management by providing dedicated account teams and making strategic inventory decisions that make general service contractor services affordable for small to medium shows. Our partnership with IMS will add high-quality, state-of-the-art event production services that will elevate the experience of the entire show, both for the show manager and show attendees,” says Mark Yuska, president of Alliance Exposition Services.
“IMS is thrilled to enter into a preferred partnership with Alliance Exposition Services. Alliance and IMS have a very similar approach to the industry; to treat the small show with a big show mentality,” says Paul Wedesky, CASE, CMP, chief operating officer of IMS. “We will work together as one team to provide everything needed to seamlessly support show management teams.”
Providing one point of contact to coordinate all event production and show management details allows IMS and Alliance to expand upon their commitments to provide personal attention and a dedicated team, helping clients save time, eliminate learning curves, and create more compelling events.
