IAEE Now Accepting Applications for the 2015 Top Public Events Recognition Program

July 10, 2015

The International Association of Exhibitions and Events Public Events Council will be accepting applications until Sept. 30 for its Top Public Events Recognition Program, which recognizes best practices in the business-to-consumers segment of the exhibitions and events industry.

Events will be judged by an impartial panel of consumer event experts on specific event criteria and general areas such as demonstrated sound business practices, stability and exceptional customer service.

The Top Public Events program criteria will remain the same as year's past, but the submission process will now be housed within IAEE's Art of the Show Competition platform. 

Click here to apply. IAEE has implemented a new, easy-to-use online system that streamlines the submission process.

Public Event producers may also use this platform to enter as many as 15 categories in the IAEE Art of the Show Competition, which recognizes excellence in the development of promotional and marketing materials for any trade or consumer event.

"The new online application system is more user-friendly and allows for greater exposure for public events," says Public Events Council Chairperson Bob Morgan, general manager, Dulles Expo Center.

He added, "It is a great opportunity to recognize the impact that public events have on the overall exhibitions and events industry. We are very excited about this year's changes, and have reduced the fee for participating in both programs to give public event organizers an opportunity to fully explore them."

Winners will be recognized at Expo! Expo! IAEE's Annual Meeting & Exhibition 2015 Dec. 1-3 in Baltimore, Md. Click here to view previous Top Public Events.

As event professionals and destinations adjust, adapt and evolve in these uncharted waters, it is imperative that substantial resources be put in place for all of the people responsible for planning and executing trade shows, expositions and conventions. An example is Mohegan Sun, which built an industry-leading, COVID-19 Resource Center with a combination of pictures from recently held successful events (the property reopened on May 1, 2020) along with several widely available and informative documents, such as an evolving operational framework:
