Chat archive available for download here: Exhibitor-Advisory-Committees
This week’s topic is Exhibitor Advisory Board/Committees – An advisory committee/board is generally a group of exhibitors (often invited by the show organizer) who represent all the exhibitors at the show. These committees are the organizer’s way to find out what the exhibitors as a whole are looking for from the event. During this chat we’ll discuss what is the purpose, best way to create them, who to get involved and more. Please join our chat if you have experience running them or if you want to know more about them. Questions for this week follow the video…
