  • Free Cybersecurity for Association Leaders Webinar


    We live in an ever-growing complex world and cybersecurity is certainly reflective of that complexity.  Never before in the history of the association industry has this level of technology-based and human-based risk existed along with an equally high level of confusion or misunderstanding by leadership teams.

    Let's take the confusion out of it and get down to simple, brass tax.  What are your real risks?  What are your effective strategies?  How can you ensure your IT team or vendors are doing the right things?  Why does this risk seem to continue to grow?  Are you doing enough?

    Join me, Brian Scott with ClearTone Consulting, along with special panel guests Ron (Mark) Moen, CIO of ASCP and Thad Lurie, CIO of ISPOR, for a brief but informative webinar on Cybersecurity for Association Leaders on Wednesday, July 20 at 12:00PM ET.

    Gain more understanding as we discuss this problem in business and personnel terms as opposed to only IT-speak.

  • CEIR's Event Analyzer Tool Looks at Your Event’s Performance for Critical Metrics

    Benefits of using the Event Performance Analyzer

    1. Quickly see if your event is outperforming, under-performing or is in line with other events in your industry sector.
    2. The tool generates charts that you may share with your show team or add into a presentation. Results will quickly point to areas that need to be addressed when planning for the next edition of your event. It may also give you bragging rights to share with your board, where you’re outperforming the competition or maybe even use in your event promotions.
    3. Users simply add results for the next show year when it occurs. The CEIR Index model is updated annually in the Spring.
    4. Users have FREE ACCESS to 13 charts. The data is downloadable into an excel file and/or users may download charts as a pdf, png or jpg.

    Sharpen your strategic planning approach – don’t wait, start now!

    Recognizing the Pandemic's Influence on Ambiguous Loss & Greif. 

    Did you experience a sudden shift in your way of living when COVID-19 hit? At times, do you feel as though you are still picking up the pieces from its impact? The COVID-19 pandemic impacted all of us whether it be from having lost a loved one due to the illness or having lost a job, sense of safety, access to our social network, or our “normal” way of living. 

    You may be overwhelmed, battling anxiety, and/or grieving all that you may have lost. Honestly, you may even be trying to navigate all three at the same time. As we celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month, we want you to take a moment to reflect on a few questions:

    • How do you feel you are handling all that COVID-19 has brought (or taken away from) you?
    • How are your family and friends adapting?
    • How has your organization recognized and helped your employees?

  • IAEE Statement on Discriminatory Laws in the U.S.

    Please read this statement from the IAEE Board of Directors:

    The International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) stands with its LGBTQIA+ members, their families, and all under-represented communities against discriminatory laws and practices. IAEE will diligently advocate and oppose these types of legislation in states that represent millions of dollars in direct local and state impact, as well as assist IAEE chapters to help overturn and block discriminatory legislation wherever it appears.

    IAEE is an inclusive home for all professionals within the exhibitions and events industry and it advocates for the industry and profession to be a flourishing place for our stakeholders to do business. It is incumbent upon the Association to provide a platform for a wide range of perspectives and a pathway for those perspectives to be heard and celebrated. When local, state or federal laws hurt one group, they hurt all groups.

    Thank you,

    IAEE Board of Directors

    Where are we now?! An Up-To-Date Look at the 2022 B2B Exhibitions Industry Today and Moving Forward
    As forecast, the second half of 2021 marked the start of the recovery of the B2B exhibition industry. Though in December, Omicron surfaced and disrupted the momentum. Despite this, Omicron is different from Delta and business activities are not locking down as extensively as they did at the outset of the pandemic. The big question is, what does this all mean for the 2022 B2B exhibition industry schedule?
