Come find us at this year’s IAVM

It’s that time again. The IAVM (International Association of Venue Managers, for those who don’t know) Annual Trade Show is coming and will be held in our neck of the woods. The IAVM will be held July 25-28 at Phoenix Convention Center. We will be at the Trade Show, in Booth 1308, showing some new products and FASTbook features and we would love for you to come by and say, “Hello.”

Event Software has been attending the IAVM (previously IAAM) Trade Show for at least the last 15 years. We find it’s a great way to converse with users and other people in the industry, get information about competing or complimenting products and hopefully attract new customers. Trade shows have been the place to impress and dazzle newcomers for years and we will try our best this year. In the past we have also attended the ACCED and ACUI shows and are considering going to them again. The internal question is always which tradeshows make the most sense to our industry and will our presence there make sense for the right type of people. Which trade shows do all of you attend? Why are you attending them? Is there a particular trade show you’d recommend for us to attend?

We are really ramping up to put on a good show this year. As this is the only annual conference we currently attend, we want to make sure it is memorable and we put our best face forward. In the past we have gotten to meet a lot of you face to face and that experience has always helped us make a better relationship with our customers and make a more valuable product for you.

Hope to see some of you there.
