The research shows that employees are more productive and engaged when they have the freedom to work from anywhere…which means leaders need the skills to lead from anywhere. And team members can do the same.

  • What is the Importance of obtaining a CEM Designation?

    The Certified in Exhibition Management® (CEM) designation is a globally recognized designation that demonstrates the highest professional standard throughout the exhibitions and events management arena.

    Earning the CEM designation will make a significant difference in an individual’s career in the exhibitions and events industry because it demonstrates career dedication, in-depth knowledge of exhibition management, and skill set expertise in the exhibition industry. 

    " After 40 plus years in the Exhibition Industry, I decided to expand my horizons. Simple truth in life "When you stop learning, you stop living"! That being said I joined IAEE for the CEM Certification. My expectations were far below what I encountered. Even after cycling through Covid this group has it's act together. I have received no less than stellar products and services. I am very excited to be part of this great machine. Kudos IAEE"

  • CEIR Research Predicts Recovery in the 2nd Half of 2021

    Just-released research from the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) presented during a webinar foresees brighter days ahead, but predicts that the industry will remain in the middle of the proverbial “tunnel” until the second half of the year.

    The biggest proof of this can be seen in staff cuts, with the average pay cuts now at 29% — and 37% of respondents saying that current layoffs will likely be permanent. “As COVID persists, the impact is being felt on more staffs, and this is the saddest result of this survey organizationally,” said Nancy Drapeau, CEIR’s VP of Research.

    The percentage of event portfolios being canceled altogether has decreased from the last CEIR survey, released in June 2020 — from 72% to 52%. Cancellations are happening across all event sizes, with the highest incidence in the South and West.

  • CEIR Announces 2020 Third Quarter Results

    The Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR) reports that the exhibition industry remained at a grinding halt in the third quarter of 2020, with approximately 97% of originally scheduled events cancelled. As a result, the CEIR Total Index, a measure of exhibition industry performance, registered a 98.1% decline from a year ago (see Figure 1). The industry experienced a more moderate year-over-year decline of real (inflation-adjusted) GDP at 2.9%, which increased at an annual rate of 33.1% from the previous quarter. The latter had been somewhat boosted by continued reopening of businesses, strong residential investment, and online and other consumer goods purchases.

  • How to network professionally during the Corona Virus Pandemic

    It’s no secret that networking is a critical component of job searching specifically, and for professional development more generally. For some, networking comes easily. Attending industry meetups, making regular appearances at local events or happy hours — these types of activities feel natural to some job-seekers and workers. For others, networking is more of a chore.

    But how are people thinking about one of the most critical aspects of finding a job or advancing in the workplace during a global pandemic? I gleaned some insights about this concern when I conducted a recent survey with a multigenerational cohort of workers, job seekers, educators, and business owners.
