Celebrating our Successes and Looking Ahead

2019 has been an exciting year for AAXO. Not only did we kick off the year celebrating our Members and the amazing work they do in the exhibition space at the AAXO ROAR Awards and Exhibition of Exhibitions, we also managed to grow the members into new territories and profiles.

AAXO hosted several well-supported networking events, in association with South African Tourism and EXSA, in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town – and there’s more to come! We represented Africa at the Indian Exhibition Industry Association annual conference and exhibition held in Delhi, India and we will be attending the IAEE’s Expo Expo in Vegas this December; to top it off, we appointed a new Board of Directors, Chairperson and Vice Chair.

We’re already getting excited for 2020 as we reach the final stages of our planning. Members can look forward to CEM training launched through AAXO in the new year. CEM – Certified in Exhibition Management, is an internationally recognised qualification for professionals in the exhibition and events industry.We’re excited to bring this world-class training programme to our members to help them learn and grow, and to assist in developing talent in our sector. The CEM designation is synonymous with thought leadership, innovation, industry recognition and growth opportunities. We encourage both members and individuals to register now.
