NOVEMBER 2020 EDITION
We are less than one month away from our virtual Expo! Expo! this 8-10 December. We hope to see you there! Read below for the latest news and updates in this edition of the Source.
We announced earlier this month that the “show for shows” was transitioning to a virtual event. With a robust marketplace, engaging networking activations and 75+ content sessions across five education tracks, there is something for everyone, no matter where you are logging on from! Enjoy a reduced member rate for a full meeting pass.
Be sure to check out the 2020 raffle prize as well as items available in the silent auction. The CEIR raffle winner will be announced on 15 December – tickets are $10 each or 6 for $50 USD. Silent auction bidding also ends on 15 December, so get in there and see what you cannot live without!
Through a webinar on 5 November, CEIR introduced the new and improved Event Performance Analyzer, a tool designed to provide insights and analytics on any show by comparing their performance against both the overall exhibition industry’s performance as well the sector performance relevant to their event.
Hybrid events are expected to gain popularity in 2021 as coronavirus cases continue to rise and fall across the globe. CNTV’s Carrie Ferenac and Orange County Convention Center Event Services Manager Michelle Neely discussed what show organizers should look for when choosing a venue or designing a space of their own. Visit the Exhibitions Channel to view these and to find interviews on a variety of COVID-19-related topics including mental health awareness, the neuroscience behind planning virtual events and much more. A special thanks to CNTV for producing this content!
