Breaking the Code: ECEF 2022 to feature leaders who succeeded during the crisis
With the exhibition and convention business in recovery mode, many executives are mindful of the need to be better prepared for an extended crisis. Preparedness and optimism are watchwords dominating the programme for the Exhibition and Convention Executives Forum (ECEF), which arrives at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC on 1 June.
Sam Lippman, president, Lippman Connects, which organises the ECEF, said: “It’s not too early to take account of the most practical success strategies.” He stressed that ECEF’s emphasis was on top-to-top networking. Sessions, he said, would be shorter, highly focused, and more interactive. “This is C-level content that will get executives talking and sharing,” Lippman added.
The June programme features insights from 13 exhibition and convention industry notables, including a keynote, Business of Belonging: Transformative Events in Extraordinary Times, by Erin Uritis, CEO of Out & Equal. She promises to reveal how the organisation grew membership and sponsorships during the pandemic.
Despite Covid: Surprising Reasons Behind the SHOT Show’s Growth is the title of the session by Chris Dolnack, senior VP and chief customer officer, NSSF – The Firearm Industry Trade Association and Jeff Pressman, president & CEO, ConvExx.
Other speakers include Jeannie Wert, director of Exhibit Management, Siemens Healthineers North America and Debbie Holton, president, Metrix Connect LLC, an ASME Company.
