December 17, 2012

The International Association of Exhibitions and Events named Scott Craighead, vice president of Exhibitions and Events, and Rick Jennings, vice president of Partnership Relations.

"These promotions are natural steps as IAEE enhances its strategic plan," said IAEE President David DuBois.

He added, "This year's meetings have been very successful and we have a very busy year planned for 2013, in which we will continue to raise the bar for our members and our industry partners."

Craighead has been with IAEE for four years and is responsible for the overall planning and smooth execution of all IAEE events. He is charged with continually providing dynamic, unique, and valuable face-to-face experiences for the IAEE community.

"I look forward to propelling and evolving IAEE events, in particular Expo! Expo!, to meet the ever-changing needs and trends of the industry," Craighead said.

He added, "I am excited by all of the possibilities, with the fortune of being surrounded by the immense talent and enthusiasm of fellow staff and members."

Jennings has been with IAEE for nearly six years marketing the annual sponsorship and advertising program for IAEE and its subsidiaries, based on industry and market research, accepted sponsorship practices, and input from IAEE staff and members.

He also is responsible for enhancing the value, visibility of, and participation in Expo! Expo!, through the development and growth of show floor density and exhibitor management.

"I look forward to enhancing the value proposition of IAEE's sponsorship and advertising programs, as well as Expo! Expo! to meet the current and future needs of our members," Jennings said.

He added, "This opportunity is a reflection of the talent and dedication of fellow staff, and was made possible by the tremendous amount of support we receive from our members."
