The E2MA is a full-fledged member of the trade show community of industry associations and routinely takes part in industry meetings like HCEA (Healthcare Convention & Exhibitors Assn.), the EDPA (Exhibit Designers & Producers Assn.), the Exposition Service Contractors Association, (ESCA), the International Association for Exhibitions and Events (IAEE), and the Society of Independent Show Organizers (SISO). The E2MA has also been invited to make presentations at CEMA (Corporate Event Marketers Assn.), ICCC (the convention center arm of IAVM), and the PCMA (Professional Convention Management Assn).
When an E2MA member experiences a show rule or a conflict on the showfloor they have a place to lodge their concerns and an organization that will voice them to the party in question. Over the years the E2MA has successfully resolved more than 100 incidents on the showfloor that would have otherwise compromised the ability of the member to provide their service.
But best of all, when change comes to our industry, like it has in the past with the labor changes at McCormick Place, or in the recent FCC ruling governing access to WiFi at convention facilities, the E2MA is included in the conversation and our member's interests are represented to their full extent.
That's what it means to have an association that has your company and your best interests in mind. Please support our efforts, and make an investment in your own future success, by joining the E2MA today!
