After a busy three days of interaction at EXHIBITORLIVE, our IFES team has left Louisville, home to the Kentucky Derby, some of the world’s greatest bourbons and, in 2023, to this premier conference and exhibition for trade show and corporate event professionals.
In conjunction with its well-known educational components and networking events, EXHIBITORLIVE 2023 enjoyed good attendance by exhibit and event managers and marketing and communications experts, as well as the service providers for the industry.
The IFES booth at #1125 proved to be the perfect space to collect a host of new contacts as well as several new members, to engage with high-quality visitors, reconnect with each other, and bask in the warm hospitality Kentucky is renowned for.
Our Pub Crawl evening took place at an awesome speakeasy-style nightspot known as Hell or High Water- a get-together that was heartily enjoyed by all and which provided a very successful introduction for the newbies and a great networking moment. We were pleasantly surprised at the enthusiasm, shown since 30 people registered, 50 were expected, and we ended up with 70 attending.
We quickly discovered the lively atmosphere of this walkable city on foot, and the easy connectivity of Louisville city was echoed in our personal experience at EXHIBITORLIVE 2023. IFES received an incredibly warm welcome from EDPA members and the whole event reaffirmed the importance of interacting with the American market face-to-face.
Thank you once again to all of our sponsors for your valuable contributions.
