International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) Public Events Council will be accepting applications until Sept. 30 for its Top Public Events Recognition Program, which recognizes best practices in the business-to-consumers segment of the exhibitions and events industry.
Events will be judged by an impartial panel of consumer event experts on specific event criteria and general areas, such as demonstrated sound business practices, stability and exceptional customer service.
IAEE has implemented a new, easy-to-use online system that streamlines the submission process. Public Event producers may also use this platform to enter as many as 15 categories in the IAEE Art of the Show Competition, which recognizes excellence in the development of promotional and marketing materials for any trade or consumer event.

“The new online application system is more user-friendly and allows for greater exposure for public events,” said Bob Morgan, chairperson, Public Events Council and general manager, Dulles Expo Center. “It is a great opportunity to recognize the impact that public events have on the overall exhibitions and events industry. We are very excited about this year’s changes, and have reduced the fee for participating in both programs to give public event organizers an opportunity to fully explore them.”
The deadline for submitting entries is Sept. 30. Winners will be recognized at Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition 2015 on Dec. 1-3 in Baltimore, Md.
The IAEE Public Events Council is charged with bringing awareness, engagement, education and recognition to the public events community.
