    New partnership brings organized approach to small and midsize trade shows. 

IMS Technology Services and Alliance Exposition Services have teamed up to assist managers of smaller to midsize trade shows to better execute their events. IMS, a full-service audio-visual company with event staging and systems integration solutions, and Alliance, the only Nationwide General Service Contractor focusing exclusively on smaller to midsize events, will together provide a seamless support system—and one point of contact—in coordinating event production needs and exhibitor management services.

“Clients will be able to upgrade the look and feel for exhibitors and attendees," says Paul Wedesky, COO of IMS." This will give midsize shows options, a bigger scale event without expanding their budget, and it will help them grow by connecting them with sponsorships.”

Wedesky also says that internet providers and registration companies are also in the works to create the "complete package": a seamless product for registration to simplify the process for event professionals. "Planners will be able to customize a program with consistency, both out front and behind the scenes." 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
