Join your fellow IT Professionals as a member of IAEE. The technology membership task force is working to enhance the benefits and resources of the IT professional, which helps you meet your internal and external client’s expectations better and more efficiently.

As technology continues to become even more fundamental to the execution of the business of exhibitions, increased involvement of technology leaders within the industry is extremely valuable to all stakeholders.
