The International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) has announced the addition of a new Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Chapter.
Based in Dubai, the chapter will serve exhibitions and events professionals in Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
“We have been very pleased with the success of the IAEE CEM Learning Program in this region,” said IAEE President and CEO David DuBois. “We look forward to extending the services we can provide IAEE members through this chapter.”
“It is exciting to play a part in the fast-growing MICE industry in this part of the world,” added 2019 IAEE Chairperson Tom Cindric, Jr., CEM, Senior Vice-President for Informa, Global Exhibitions. “The opportunity for professionals to join IAEE’s expansive community will present a win-win for the global outlook of exhibitions and events.”
IAEE claims that organisers of more than 20,000 exhibitions and buyer-seller events around the world are members of its association.
