Join ILEA Columbus for a look at what went into planning the American Society of Association Executives Annual Meeting & Exposition in Columbus. Our panel of speakers includes members of the Local Organizing Committee (multiple were ILEA members!), who will share their expertise and roles in hosting this event.

In August for ASAE, Columbus hosted 5,000 association executives, meeting professionals and suppliers over four days, Aug 10-13, 2019, filling 16,800 hotel room nights. The city generated $16 million in direct visitor spending and now has the potential to book as much as half a billion dollars’ worth of future convention and events.
