How Exhibition Logistics are Being Impacted by the Global Supply Chain Crisis: What You Need to Know!

3 May 2023

With the global supply chain crisis still affecting logistics around the world, international and North American exhibitors participating in exhibitions abroad face daunting questions such as: How do we get our exhibit material to show site? Will it arrive on time? How much will it cost? Are these costs a reason not to exhibit?

Exhibitors weigh these and various other considerations – many of which are out of their control – when deciding whether to participate in an international exhibition, which means they should also be top of mind for show organizers.

Join international logistics experts Jackie Russo, Principal of Global Expositions, Inc. and Tom Gilmore, Vice President of Cargo Operations, IMTS Show for this informative session on all things relevant to the global supply chain process and how logistics are being impacted around the world.

Prepare to:

  • Understand international air and sea freight challenges affecting exhibitions.
  • Identify proactive solutions your organizations may undertake to help exhibitors mitigate costs.
  • Formulate programs within your show to make exhibiting in your show a turnkey opportunity.

NEW! IAEE Specialty Webinar Series: Sales Strategies & Solutions

Our post-pandemic business world keeps changing and evolving, moving our clients and their buying needs right along with it. Things you did before the pandemic may no longer yield the results they once did.

We’ve teamed with sales, leadership and performance expert Gary Hernbroth of Training for Winners to help you examine the changing dynamics of the buyers that impact your business, sales efforts and biggest challenges you must overcome to produce results.
