IMEX America is arguably the most exciting trade show for event professionals in North America. Just look at how many people the 2019 show expects to attract to the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas over September 10–12:
Those are all great reasons to come to IMEX America, but here are a few more, courtesy of Socio.
Did you know that the average attendee spends 8.3 hours viewing trade show exhibits at an expo? That’s according to SpinGo’s “20 Powerful Stats on the Value of Trade Shows and Expos.”
You’re going to be famished after a day of touring thousands of exhibits. But don’t worry, we’ll help you replenish.
We’re taking over Cañonita’s Street Taqueria, a taco truck stand easily accessible from IMEX America. Because we take empowering (and refueling) event organizers seriously.
It’s easy to find, too. Just follow the Grand Canal from the expo entrance.
We’ve got plenty of swag to give away, from super-comfy T-shirts to stickers that celebrate the awesome work event planners do.
But what we’re most excited to show you is who we are, what we believe in, and why we’re passionate about empowering event organizers through technology.
That’s why we’re rocking orange pants. Orange is special to us. It’s the color of energy, enthusiasm, and creativity—all essentials organizers need to plan successful events.
And our fondness for astronauts? We think it’s a powerful symbol. Event professionals, after all, must often lead into the unknown with hundreds, even thousands of people relying on their leadership.
We get that. We build our products to address it, and we design our swag to celebrate it.
If you’re a customer, you know him. If you’ve read Socio’s G2 customer reviews, you know his name.
We’re bringing with us Matt Gibson, Socio’s resident customer success expert, along with several other members of our award-winning support team.
Matt’s ability to set up customers for success is a big reason why we’ve achieved a 10 out of 10 support rating. Not to mention, it’s why customers personally call out Matt in their feedback.
“The app looks great and functions very well, but the major reason I am in love with Socio is the truly above and beyond customer service received from Joe and Matt.”– Denise Wills, Society for California Archaeology (SCA)
“For our enterprise event, they had everything we needed and more when it came to features. Also, I couldn’t ask for an easier to use software … when I ran into any questions, their support team was extremely responsive. Thanks Matt!”– Tierra Henderson, Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA)
“Matt, I appreciate how responsive your team has been to my anxiety over taking on all this ‘newness.’ You have been so helpful and proactive.”– Cindi Williams, California Peace Officers’ Association (CPOA)
