ESPA PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

The Annual Conference of the Event Service Professionals Association is attended by leading event and convention service managers in the meetings industry — including forward-thinking CSMs from convention centers, convention & visitors bureaus and hotels. ESPA is dedicated to elevating the event and convention service profession and to preparing members, through education and networking, for their pivotal role in innovative and successful event execution. Member CSMs make their own purchasing decisions and have influence on tens of thousands of meeting planners who hold conventions and events in their venues and destinations. The exposure is tremendous and we want to find the perfect partnership with your business to make the experience with ESPA truly successful.
