Tucson, AZ – Steve Sind, President of Global Event Strategies, will present two seminars on emerging opportunities in the exhibition sector in China.  The events will be hosted by the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre (SNIEC) and sponsored by Trade Show Executive magazine.  The seminars, set for next month in Chicago and Washington, DC,  are endorsed by the Midwestern and Washington, DC chapters of IAEM.

Speakers Wolfram Diener, General Manager, SNIEC,  and Steve Sind, President, Global Event Strategies,  will discuss opportunities for U.S. show organizers in China, recent changes in rules for organizing events, and best practices for creating and operating successful events. Each participant will also receive a market research report on the economy, growth and priority exports from the U.S. to China.

“With the increase in spending in China and the increase in imports, the timing is right for U.S. show organizers to talk about opportunities for new revenue streams through opportunities in China,” says Sind, who created the seminars.

The breakfast seminars are free to subscribers of Trade Show Executive magazine and members of IAEM; $299 for others.  They take place April 22 from 7:30 to 10:30 am at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Chicago and April 23 from 7:30 to 10:30 am at the Washington, DC. Convention Center. For more information contact Steve Sind, President, Global Event Strategies at (520) 751-2402 or
