2015 Red Diamond Congress

July 20 - 22, 2015

Boston Quincy Marriott

Quincy, MA


Engagement in the Exhibit & Event Industry

The E2MA Red Diamond Congress is an event for the entire community of exhibit and event industry professionals.  Specifically designed to build bridges of connection, understanding, and opportunity, the E2MA Red Diamond Congress will not only provide education,  information, and networking opportunities for E2MA members and industry colleagues, it will also explore the challenges and opportunities that exist for all industry organizations and interest groups in the face-to-face marketing medium.   

The E2MA is a community of exhibit and event marketers that are driven to benchmark the business value of face-to face marketing events and explore new tools, new technologies, and new techniques that can optimize face-to-face marketing.   By facilitating discussions among all industry stakeholders about those issues that tend to minimize event outcomes, the E2MA's Red Diamond Congress is dedicated to develop actionable ideas and solutions that can provide for industry growth and success.

The theme of this year's event is Engagement.


Why RDC?


While there are many other outstanding exhibit and event industry conferences, almost all are organized to address the needs of a single stakeholder group, and are often absent the input of key players in the exhibit and event industry.  The E2MA Red Diamond Congress (RDC), by design, is a true congress of industry stakeholders that invites input from all points of view and values the collective experience of all industry professionals, no matter what segment you represent or what role you play.    For in the final analysis, while it takes many different stakeholders and interest groups to produce a successful event - there is no "they," there is only "us." 

An Outstanding Program Mix


The RDC will advance top level discussions and facilitate deep examinations into the issues that challenge us while cultivating conversations that can enhance Engagement for all segments of our audience.

While the audience at the RDC is primarily made up of exhibit marketers (34%) and their suppliers (41%), our audience also includes:


·      Show Organizers   (5%)

·      Facility Management  (3%)

·      Exhibit Design/Build firms  (6%)

·      General Service Contractors  (4%)

·      Senior Marketers /Marketing Agencies  (2%)

·      Union Business Representatives  (3%)

·       Keynote presentations from industry and marketing thought leaders
