SHIFT 2: EXHIBIT BREAKDOWN, PACKING AND SHIPPING
AAIE remains the premier non-profit organization serving and connecting International School Heads and Leaders. The 52nd Annual International Leadership Conference & Expo affords our exhibitors expanded opportunities to connect face-to-face with school decision makers and leaders who depend on the services our conference exhibitors provide. The exhibit hall is directly connected to the General Session space in New York, and is where all refreshment breaks and the Tuesday evening Networking Reception are hosted during the conference to maximize interactions with attendees.
We also promote conference connections through targeted networking opportunities, speaking venues, receptions and expanded use of our interactive conference Mobile App. The AAIE 2018 App will allow all attendees to directly communicate, set appointments and share information prior, during and following the event. The connections developed during the conference continue long afterwards and are the basis of many long-term business relationships and global friendships.
Connect with Purchasing Decision Makers
As a conference exhibitor, your connection with leaders begins well before visiting New York City and will continue long after thanks to several AAIE initiatives to increase attendee and exhibitor networking.
Prior to the conference, exhibitors are featured in the AAIE Conference Resource Directory that provides contact,services and product information to all attendees for our exhibitors. This direct mailing goes to all AAIE member schools leadership teams and their business managers to maximize awareness and encourage individual contact in order to meet at the conference.
At the 52nd Conference we will be also be offering an expanded private meeting area for exhibitors and attendees, along with facilitating several networking games that award highly sought after prizes for attendees that meet and engage with our exhibitors and each other. Inclusion in the games is a basic benefit for all AAIE Exhibitors.
To increase your impact and visibility, a variety of sponsorship and advertising options are available for inclusion in the printed program, the conference bag and via the App.
Following the conference, a second direct mailing will be sent to schools as a spring resource for decision makers to follow up with questions and decisions about ordering and partnerships well into the following school year.
