Ultra-efficient event format will provide custom integrators in the east coast megapolis with the information, ideas and vendor contact they need to achieve rapid growth.
Framingham, MA – EH Publishing announced today the launch of its new event for the custom electronics industry, titled the CE Exchange. Designed to be a catalyst for change and growth in the custom industry, the CE Exchange focuses on efficiency in its format, minimizing footsteps and windshield time at the host location and maximizing productive interaction among participants.
The CE Exchange will feature compelling general sessions and seminars, manufacturing training sessions, a showcase meeting area where suppliers and integrators will connect and exciting networking events. The CE Exchange will draw owners and top managers of the best custom companies in the East not only with great content but also through connections with the CE Pro 100 companies in the region.
The inaugural event will be held May 6-8, 2013 at the MGM Grand Hotel in the Foxwoods Resort and Casino, Mashantucket, CT. Built in 2008, the MGM & Foxwoods offers great meeting space and accommodations and a wide range of dining and entertainment options all under one roof as well as golf on the resort grounds. The MGM at Foxwoods is also within an easy trip for attendees located in the vast east coast megapolis stretching from Maine to Virginia. The east coast megapolis, boasting a total population of more than 50 million and gross domestic product in excess of $2.5 trillion, is the largest cohesive market for custom electronics in the US and has never been served with a major custom electronics event.
For sponsors, the Exchange represents not only an opportunity to connect efficiently with hundreds of the best integrators from the East and beyond, but also an opportunity to benefit from buzz creation and publicity in CE Pro magazine and on CEPro.com. Valuable promotion and advertising programs that multiply the market-wide effects of participation are built into sponsorship packages.
In 2014, the CE Exchange concept will expand to two annually with the addition of CE Exchange -Americas held in March in Miami. The CE Exchange Americas will target attendance from Florida and the growing Latin American market.
“We’re excited to be launching a new event tuned to the times for the custom electronics industry,” said John Galante, managing director of EH Events. “We’ve spent months consulting prospective exhibitors and integrators to design an event format and select a location and venue that responds to the industry’s needs. Along with our now five-year-old CE Pro 100 Summit, the CE Exchange offers another great way to connect suppliers and integrators in a more intimate, educational and enjoyable way.”
Priority sponsorship selection materials for the CE Exchange will be sent to past EH Event customers in June.
