Venue Managers’ association looks ahead to return of in-person events 

September 23, 2020 – DALLAS – The Expo Group, an exhibitions and events partner that invests in growth, is announcing several extended contractual deals that signal a belief in the return to live events and trade shows.

“The global pandemic detrimentally impacted the ability to convene member and customer communities,” says Toby Purdy, Chief Sales Officer for The Expo Group. “Our clients are ready to start Moving Forward Together, as we all look ahead to 2021 and beyond. The Expo Group team is humbled by the trust our clients have shown us, and we join in their optimism for face-to-face trade shows.”

To support the return of trade shows and events, The Expo Group has partnered with a public health advisor from Johns Hopkins and released tactical health and safety protocols as well as strategic creative resources. Expectations of live audiences have been shifting and now, even more, experiences must be compelling and memorable.

The International Association of Venue Managers is one client that extended The Expo Group’s contract to design and execute their trade shows.

“Year after year, The Expo Group has proven to be a trusted partner and resource for IAVM events.  They serve as a necessary extension of our own events team by managing the critical details of a show move in, set up and move out as well as by understanding the strategic goals of our event,” says Director of Meetings Tonya Farmer. “The Expo Group works hard to ensure we provide the best service to our exhibitors, while also being mindful of our overall bottom line. I highly recommend TEG to any organization as their event partner.”

“Our partner IAVM serves professionals deeply affected by COVID-19, and we are proud to support the association that supports them,” Purdy says. “Our team is looking forward to creating compelling experiences for years to come at IAVM trade shows and events.”
