The Exhibition and Convention Executives Forum (ECEF) is the information-sharing and networking experience exclusively for CEOs, Presidents, Executive Directors, VPs and C-executives at associations and independent organizers.
There is a tech-empowered, data-driven path through the pandemic… and beyond. Those that choose this path will be in the best position to grow and thrive. In his virtual keynote, Shelly Palmer will show you how to proactively leverage your data and your existing infrastructure to create value for your business.
ECEF is one the few opportunities where independent and association show organizers get to mingle and learn from one another.
