The International Association of Exhibitions and Events opened registration for Expo! Expo!, its annual meeting, this week, approximately a month earlier than originally scheduled. Executive director Steven Hacker explained that the association wanted to give attendees the chance to secure airline tickets "while they're available and before prices go up." Expo! Expo! will be held Dec. 9-11 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Attendees can register at www.iaee.com/events/expo. Hacker said IAEE aims to publish its first digital newsletter on the state of the airline industry as early as Aug. 10.
