“Congratulations to the cities selected for our 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026, and 2027 ASAE Annual Meeting & Expositions. We look forward to working closely with the selected convention and visitors bureaus which includes a vast network of local and regional Societies of Association Executives (SAE), as we plan and execute the high level meetings our members expect us to deliver,” said Interim ASAE President and CEO, Susan Robertson, CAE.
Among the association executives who attend the ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition are those who select destinations for their own organization’s meetings and events. It is estimated that 20% of the delegates who attend the ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition book their own conventions in the host city within five years.
“This is our host cities' chance to shine in front of an audience of association professionals that determine future meeting sites for their organizations. Once onsite, attendees will be acutely aware of everything related to the hospitality, convention facilities, hotels, restaurants, and entertainment as well as overall experience. If impressed, they will strongly consider bringing their own association meetings to these cities,” added Robertson.
The upcoming ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition venues will be a mix of cities that have hosted the Annual Meeting previously and new destinations. ASAE has held the Annual Meeting in Nashville, Atlanta and Los Angeles in 2014, 2013 and 2010 consecutively. Having held smaller programs in Cleveland, Indianapolis and Charlotte, ASAE is excited to explore new destinations by bringing the Annual Meeting & Exposition to these cities for the first time.
