Join Us for #Expochat Nov. 2: TSNN Awards: Education, Inspiration, Celebration

October 31, 2016

If you have not been to the TSNN Awards to participate in the industry's original weekend for Celebrating Success, let us help you gain some of the same Education and Inspiration by taking part in #Expochat – an industry Twitter chat session – Nov. 2 at 1pm ET.

Here are some questions that will be discussed: 

1. Theme Parties: What makes them work or not work? Is this the kind of tribal event that can be a boon for attendee retention and word-of-mouth marketing?

2. Keeping Your Exhibitors: An all-star panel of CTSMs shared insights for how they like to work with trade show organizers. Do you agree or disagree with what they had to say?

3. State of the Industry: Our association heads were on the hot seat, now it's your turn to sound off on how you would have answered some of the hard-nosed questions from TSNN President Rachel Wimberly.

4. Jaws Keynote: What did Ron Jaworski have to share about being a Game Changer? How can YOU be a Game Changer?

When: Nov. 6, 1pm ET

Where?: Use hashtag #Expochat and any Twitter chat tool! (Tweetchat, for example)

Moderator: Dana Freker Doody, The Expo Group

NEW: Come to the chat with questions about anything trade show related. We will use our community to address your issues or maybe even hook you up with some help. 

What is #EXPOCHAT?

Expochat is a Twitter-based conversation on topics related to the trade show industry. It takes place most Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time (new time slot) and tackles a single topic each week-a recurring pain point, innovative ideas, evolution of the industry, best practices, and what works. Expochat is alternately moderated by four industry thought leaders: Stephanie Selesnick (International Trade Information, Inc.), Dana Freker Doody (The Expo Group), Terence Donnelly (Experient), and Michelle Bruno (Bruno Group Signature Services).

Expochat has been reformatted from previous years. The discussion (new format) will last a very fast-paced 30 minutes, followed by 15 minutes during which participants may ask questions of the group on any topic. To participate, sign up on and follow the #Expochat hashtag at the appointed time. Questions will be identified as Q1, Q2, etc. Responses from participants should be written as A1, A2, etc. Tools like and others can make it easier to participate. Ideas are welcome on Expochat, but commercialism is not.

Trade Show News Network, the leading online exhibition-industry news resource, sponsors the chat, and topics are listed in advance on Reminders will be tweeted out prior to each week's discussion, but if you miss a chat, Storify transcripts will be available on TSNN after each chat. We gladly accept requests for topics at Guest moderators are also welcome. #Expochat, now in its fourth year, works because the community supports it. Join us for the best live conversations about the industry that signs your paycheck. Rants welcome.
