Indian Exhibition Industry Association to host its flagship 10th edition of IEIA Open Seminar this December


India’s premier exhibition industry association – IEIA (Indian Exhibition Industry Association) has announced its flagship Open Seminar that will witness the industry stalwarts converge at BIEC, Bengaluru, this year.

The 10th edition of IEIA Open Seminar will take place on 20 – 21 December, 2021 and will feature deliberations on relevant aspects concerning the overall exhibition industry. Notably, the Indian Exhibition Industry Association had to postpone its annual Open Seminar, scheduled to have taken place earlier in Bengaluru from 21-23 May 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 9th edition of IEIA Open Seminar had successfully gathered professional players from different verticals of the exhibition industry which included organizers, M & A specialists, venue owners, service providers, technology providers, logistic service providers, stall fabricators and many more from across the globe. More than 500 delegates from 28 plus countries had marked their presence, bringing together the Indian and global exhibition industry fraternity under one roof. The event was supported by many global associations, including UFI, IAEE, AFECA, SISO, UBRAFE, AEFI, AFE, IELA, CENTREX, AUMA, SBE and several more.

The 10th edition will also provide a platform for attendees to meet, network and build relations with the leaders of the industry.

IEIA is the national apex body of the exhibition industry in India and brings together the exhibition organisers, venue owners, services and facilities providers to build a wide network and promote the Indian exhibition industry in a comprehensive manner.
