By establishing a certified exhibition designation, IAEE is setting the “Gold Standard” for exhibitions and setting a broad set of best practices that all exhibitions should adhere to. This member driven initiative will certify an exhibition’s compliance with minimum standards of conduct and performance.

Standards include those that are fact based and easily confirmed and that bear upon customer service to attendees, exhibitors, contractors, and facilities in the broadest sense. Organizational candidates that meet all criteria will be awarded an IAEE “Certified Exhibition” graphic made available to them for their use on promotional materials.

IAEE will also announce newly designated exhibitions at regular intervals throughout the year via public relations, member communications, and social media.

We are currently in the promotional period of this program and all IAEE show organizer members may apply for the designation at NO COST. Visit the Certified Exhibition Program here.
