MARIETTA, Ga. – Society of Independent Show Organizers (SISO) and Exposition Development Company Inc. (ExpoDevCo) have signed a three-year extension to the management services agreement currently in place. The new agreement runs through the end of 2024.
“SISO is an incredibly important group to me personally, over the last 20 years it has been the catalyst for many of the business partnerships and opportunities that we have developed at ExpoDevCo,” David Audrain, SISO CEO and Executive Director, said. “This is the case for a great many of the SISO members, both large and small, and the exceptional support we receive year after year for the SISO CEO Summit and other SISO events shows. Personally, I have made exceptional friendships in this business over the last 30 years, and managing SISO is the best way I know to give back to the industry that has been very good to me.”
Services provided by ExpoDevCo include association staff, member services and event management, with Audrain serving as CEO and Executive Director, a position he has held since the end of 2015. Audrain is also CEO and Partner of ExpoDevCo, a SISO member and an organizer of a dozen trade shows and conferences across multiple industries.
