AAPEX Events Committee

Members focus on ways to ensure the long-term health of the event.The AAEC has worked with exhibitors to define the following objectives for the committee:
- Educate: Hear from AAPEX vendors (mdg, Glasgow, Freeman), industry & consumer media, The Expo Group, and CEIR, among others.
- Inform: What’s happening behind the scenes in planning for AAPEX.
- Increase Exhibitor ROI: Get the most out of your AAPEX experience; receive data and statistics to help support goals.
- Assist: Exhibitor deadlines and reminders; help pre-show, on-site and post-show.
- Listen: A forum for exhibitors to provide input, voice concerns, make suggestions to improve the show.
