After a gap of two years, the EEA is coming back in physical format in 2022. Despite the pandemic, we owe a lot to many such torchbearers who continued to lead & show the way to industry. This year, we have made the program even more stronger as we have co-located the much anticipated India Associations and Corporate Leadership Summit with EEA. IACLS will be held in the first half of the event on 8th July while the EEA will commence from the 2nd half. All in all, this year the event is full of whole day action, amazing business opportunities and some truly memorable experiences. Over 500 exhibition organisers, trade & professional associations, trade bodies, corporate heads, venues and MICE stakeholders will attend the event on 8th July 2022 at India Expo Mart, Gr. Noida. To leverage the business opportunities, there will be a co-located Event Services Expo that will run parallel  for the whole day.
