Exhibitions and Conferences Alliance (ECA) Advocacy Updates

March 3, 2021

The new Exhibitions and Conferences Alliance (ECA) was formed to continue a focus on a short and long-term roadmap for our industry. Existing advocacy initiatives – Go LIVE Together and Exhibitions Mean Business will continue under the ECA umbrella. The structure of ECA will also allow for the development of new advocacy campaigns as specific needs arise in the future.

Join this informative discussion, moderated by David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA, IAEE President and CEO and hear how this new initiative will help provide a more permanent and elevated focus on our industry advocacy.

By participating in this session, you will be able to:

  • Learn about the new ECA entity that has been developed and endorsed by eight industry organizations; hear about the need to have a full-time Vice President of Government Affairs; along with the need for a permanent focus on industry advocacy which has been identified and is now a reality.
  • Gain shared, practical suggestions and resources that will enable our industry ecosystem to become supportive of and engaged in the ECA initiatives.
  • Ask and address any questions you may have, as well as provide suggestions so that ECA efforts can be enhanced and more effective at the local, state and national levels.
