ISSA: More show, more value

March 27, 2013

LINCOLNWOOD, IL — ISSA has expanded its ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America trade showhours in response to attendee and exhibitor demand for more time to network and share new innovation, according to a press release.

Starting at the 2013 event, this November 18-21 in Las Vegas, there will be additional hours built into the week’s three-day trade show schedule, the release stated.

According to the release, the expansion is the result of a large response in attendee convention surveys reporting there was not enough time on the show floor to conduct meetings and visit the more than 650 exhibitors participating in the event each year.

When making travel plans, visitors also will want to pay special attention to the days of the week during which ISSA/INTERCLEAN and the ISSA Convention will take place in 2013; this year will follow a Monday through Thursday schedule, based on the convention center’s availability, the release noted.

"We are pleased to better meet attendee needs and to provide additional return on their investment. In a year where the theme is 'My Show. My Value,' it is fitting that buyers and exhibitors can take advantage of more show and more value," said ISSA Executive Director John Garfinkel.
