February 2, 2022

Trade Show News Network (TSNN) and Lippman Connects, producer of information-sharing and networking experiences for the convention and exhibition industry, have teamed up to continue fostering professionalism among event organizers. 

Under the agreement, TSNN will be the exclusive media partner for Lippman Connects Roundtables, a series of eight events in several U.S. locations throughout 2022 that will focus on attendee acquisition, exhibit sales and large shows. TSNN will raise industry awareness of the roundtables, provide readers with discounts to attend, offer on-site insights and guidance on best practices and present exclusive post-event reporting.

“TSNN is a leader in delivering essential news and information for exhibition and convention organizers,” said Sam Lippman, president of Lippman Connects. “We are proud to have their year-round support of the roundtables.”

Rachel Wimberly, president of Tarsus Media, TSNN's umbrella company, underscored the importance of continuing to support event professionals in advancing their careers and moving the industry forward. 

“Both Lippman Connects and TSNN have a shared commitment to the success of the executives, managers and professionals at event-producing organizations,” Wimberly said. “We view this exclusive partnership as a benefit to the entire industry.”

Following is the Lippman Connects Roundtables schedule for 2022:

  • Feb. 17: Exhibit Sales Roundtable, Arlington, Va.
  • March 10: Attendee Acquisition Roundtable, Arlington, Va.
  • April 7: Large Show Roundtable, Las Vegas
  • June 30: Exhibit Sales Roundtable, Chicago
  • July 28: Attendee Acquisition Roundtable, Chicago
  • Aug. 25: Large Show Roundtable (location to be determined)
  • Sept. 29: Exhibit Sales Roundtable, Arlington, Va.
  • Oct. 27: Attendee Acquisition Roundtable, Arlington, Va.

All Lippman Connects Roundtables, which are in-person only and limited to 30 participants each to maximize peer-to-peer information exchange, are designed to offer key benchmarks, trends, data and other insights, while allowing attendees to network, make valuable career contacts and exchange best practices. 

Lippman, who has been producing the roundtables since 2001, believes that the most efficient and cost-effective way to stay current with industry best practices is to invest one day of time in a facilitated discussion with an exclusive group of industry peers.

“This is what happens at each Lippman Connects Roundtable,” he said. “And now with the addition of subject matter experts and content from TSNN, these roundtables will be even more productive.”
