IFES Shines at EXHIBITORLIVE 2024: A Recap

As EXHIBITORLIVE 2024 comes to a close, IFES wraps up its successful participation at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee, from February 27th to 28th.

As always this platform fostered meaningful connections and lively discussions with the North American market. It also reinforced IFES bonds with EDPA and generated a lot of interest for our upcoming MasterClass 2024 in Atlanta. As a result of these interactions, we look forward to increased US participation in the annual IFES World Summit in Malaga as well.

As North America’s largest Exhibit Hall of Trade Show Products and Services, EXHIBITORLIVE attracts over 6000 trade show and corporate event marketers eager to enhance their marketing strategies. For IFES, this event serves as a pivotal platform to engage face-to-face with potential buyers seeking Exhibition Services, while also offering international insights and perspectives.

Our esteemed colleagues Martijn Besaris, Jorg Zeissig, and Steve Riches made impactful contributions to the official education program with their session titled “What makes the Difference: How to successfully participate in an EU tradeshow.” By sharing their wealth of knowledge and experiences, they empowered attendees with crucial insights to expand their reach into the European market.

Our team also conducted a “Meet Your IFES Expert” campaign at stand #854, giving visitors the opportunity to interact with our specialists (Steve Riches, Lee Ali, Philippe Beille, Uta Goretzky and Martijn Besaris), on topics such as Education, Sustainability, IFES Vision, Collaboration, and Future Talent from the IFES perspective.

The IFES booth emerged once again as a cornerstone for reconnecting with our members, engaging with high-quality visitors, and presenting our network to the vibrant North American market.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our sponsors for their invaluable contributions. Your support continues to fuel our endeavours, and we deeply appreciate your generosity.


A big thank you to our Sponsors
