In response to exhibitor and attendee feedback, ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership is changing the format of the trade show portion of its 2010 Annual Meeting & Expo, taking place in Los Angeles, Aug. 21-24. According to Amy Ladoux, CAE, CMP, vice president of meetings and expositions for ASAE, the expo now will last two days (down from three), though the total number of exhibit hours will be extended from seven hours to seven and a half. The association and its Industry Partner Alliance are working on a plan for increased face-to-face meeting opportunities for exhibitors and attendees on the last day of the show; among the possibilities is a three-hour "lounge" with seating.
