The International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) has launched a new initiative that will set the ‘Gold Standard’ for exhibitions and events.
The IAEE Certified Exhibition Programme will be a certified exhibition designation, to establish a broad set of best practices that all events with exhibitions should adhere to.
“IAEE members who earn and display the Certified Exhibition symbol are telling their customers, exhibitors, members and the general public that they produce a quality exhibition that meets IAEE’s best practice standards,” stated Certified Event Task Force chairperson Randy Bauler, CEM.
“We look forward to the time when most of the shows produced by IAEE members meet the standards and proudly display the Certified Exhibition emblem.”
This member-driven initiative will only certify an exhibition’s compliance with minimum standards of conduct and performance. Standards include those that are fact based and easily confirmed, and that bear upon customer service to attendees, exhibitors, contractors and facilities in the broadest sense.
Complete details will be available when the programme launches fully in March 2017.
