A Whirlwind for the Event Industry!

Wow, what a year 2022 was for our industry and the IAEE DFW Chapter! The industry came back strong and continues to show significant growth going forward with some shows even passing pre-pandemic numbers. Our chapter hosted awesome events this year including Cup of Content, Industry Idea Swap, Jingle Mingle, the Chapter Reception at Expo Expo, a Back of House Toy Fair Tour, a few Happy Hours, and of course Donuts & Dish.
The IAEE DFW Chapter is proud to represent the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but we also encompass Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and New Orleans as well! We strive to grow our presence in these areas and bolster membership by actively engaging you as members through activity, participation, and advocacy at the chapter level. One of our goals this year is to host an event in one of these cities outside of the DFW area. 
We kick-started the new year by hosting a board retreat in December to begin the planning process of our calendar events. Events will include educational opportunities, networking events, and other fun things throughout the year. 

Our goal in 2023 is to be a resource to you as the MEMBER. Whether it’s better understanding your IAEE Membership & the benefits, networking with fellow event industry professionals, receiving quality education at our events, starting or continuing your CEM journey, or just being engaged in our industry, the chapter and board are here to help YOU. Please reach out to anyone on the board or me personally, if you want to discuss your membership, our events, or anything else. We want to be a resource!

Don’t forget we have Donuts & Dish on the second Friday of every month. Where we dish about the industry, catch up with old and new friends, and shoot the breeze. Oh, it’s on Zoom so if you work from home, don’t even worry about getting out of your pajamas.

Please keep an eye out for our emails and find the most up-to-date chapter info on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram.

Look forward to seeing you at one of our events in 2023!

  • I am active in the IAEE DFW Chapter because the networking and education events are an invaluable tool for my growth both personally and professionally. We are such a diverse chapter that I know someone in the chapter can help me with solution for a problem that I might have at my organization.
