On June 7 & 8, exhibition industry volunteers will gather in Washington, D.C. to educate lawmakers on the importance of our industry at the third annual Exhibitions Day. Last year, more than 100 people spent the day calling on legislators and other policy makers.
But even if you can’t make it to D.C. next month, you can play a part in the effort to help lawmakers understand the economic impact of meetings and trade shows. There’s a free toolkit available on the Exhibitions Mean Business website, which includes sample social media posts, tips for contacting your local elected officials or the media, plus more. (There are also a couple of videos at the link above which offer a glimpse into what the day is all about.)
