In the exhibitions and events industry, it is important to show recognition of a job well done. Below you will find IAEE news and resources, along with information on our Woman of Achievement award and how to enter.
IAEE COVID-19 Resources
IAEE’s exhibition organizer members are experiencing disruptions to attendance/exhibitors from the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As there is a lot of information available – some reliable and some not – we have compiled a list of resources to use when navigating this new threat to the global exhibitions’ community.
As the leading trade association for the global exhibitions and events industry, it is important for IAEE to gauge the worldwide impact of this outbreak. Visit the COVID-19 resources page.

Great work continues on the IAEE Health and Safety Task Force with the goal of releasing information to the IAEE community on Exhibitions Day. This task force was formed to support the GBAC/ISSA/IAVM COVID-19 Working Group whose purpose is to assist facilities, institutions, companies and governments in preparing for, responding to and recovering from pandemics with draft considerations for holding exhibitions, and making the information available to the exhibitions and events and hotel industries as soon as practically possible. Stay tuned!
