  1. Georgia World Congress Center
  2. Start the day with breakfast and a provocative Keynote Address by Michelle Edmonson, Senior Director - Events & Content at AMT, producers of the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). She will be joined by Bob Ryley, Senior Vice President Exhibition Sales at GES, to explain how the IMTS Custom Block Pricing model has evolved into a highly successful program for IMTS.

    Cost certainty, transparency & ease of budgeting are all possible when a show develops and implements a different exhibitor pricing model for their show. The Custom Block Package was designed to make exhibiting easier for the 1,400-plus exhibiting companies at IMTS.  They save time, while taking the guesswork out of exhibiting. Have you ever considered shifting to a different exhibitor pricing model?  When you simplify the overall exhibiting experience, the benefits to your customers ultimately reward your show. Michelle and Bob will walk you through popular exhibitor package options as well as answer questions on how the IMTS Custom Block Package has evolved since its introduction at the IMTS 2006.

  3. What have we learned about virtual that we can integrate into effective hybrid business models? Go behind closed doors for frank, unrecorded discussions focusing on hybrid strategies.
  4. What are the evolving expectations of exhibitors and sponsors that will have both short and long term implications for large shows? 
  5. Welcome by Joe Bocherer, Chief Commercial Officer, Georgia World Congress Center.

  6. Presenting a timely round up of research relevant to executives and managers of large shows.
  7. Acquiring and retaining attendees is always the biggest challenge, and continuing COVID-related concerns are only making it tougher. How can large shows leverage their size and reach to mitigate pandemic hesitancy?
  8. Collect large show insights from the sharpest minds at the most respected shows in the nation. 
  9. The exchange is fast and furious when the day's most valued takeaways are reviewed.
