Safety and Security at Trade Shows – What IAEE is Doing
by: David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA, President and CEO of the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE)
In the past few months, terrorism has taken a significant toll upon our society. For the exhibitions and events industry, the safety of our attendees and event staff is our highest priority as evidenced by the many members who employ a variety of security measures at each event. But in light of recent terror attacks around the world, it is now time to proactively strengthen our security by setting a national standard that will provide safeguards for the safety and security of our attendees and the preparedness of our industry.
