Message from the Chair

Peter Abraham

Spring 2017

Welcome to the New England Chapter of the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE).  Our chapter is comprised of around 400 members from all six New England states. 

As we kick off the start of a new year, we’ve got some excited things planned.

In March, we hosted our first networking reception at the brand new City Tap House in Boston’s vibrant Seaport District.

And then in April, we’ll return to the beautifully renovated Boston Park Plaza for this year’s first educational event. Sponsored by FERN, the topic is titled “Increased Attendance – How to Get Record Attendance at Your Next Event: Seven Proven Strategies That Won’t Cost You a Dime!”.

For more information on any of our events, please visit our events page.

Our members come from all walks of life and bring a wide variety of knowledge from across the events and hospitality industry.  Through networking, events, and social media, this information and these relationships are right at your fingertips!  If you are not a member please reach out to us regarding joining our thriving chapter today.

The New England Chapter aims to inspire those who inspire others, through education and recognition.  I encourage our likeminded members to reach out to me directly with any ideas you may have or things you would like to see happen to better our members and strengthen the communities that we live and work in.  With your help, and the diligence and creativity of our board, we aim to produce many educational, social and charitable events this coming year.

I am proud to serve as the chair and even more proud to work in such a creative, vibrant and impactful industry.  

Thank you for taking interest in our page and in our chapter.  Should you have any questions, comments or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you.

Sincerest Regards,
Peter Abraham, CEM
