AICI 2015 Global Conference Sponsor and Exhibitor Registration is Open!

The Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) is the leading and largest professional association of image consultants in the world. Founded over two decades ago, AICI has approximately 1,000 members from 57 countries in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Our members counsel both personal and corporate clients in professionalism, etiquette, communications, behavior, and appearance so their specific goals are met with authenticity, credibility, and confidence. The community of image consultants enhances the industry standards through a rigorous, three tiered certification program.

The 2015 AICI Global Conference is the perfect opportunity to display your products or services to an estimated 250 image consulting professionals worldwide. With AICI’s members influencing the decision to buy for thousands of affluent and professional clients, exhibiting at or sponsoring the AICI Conference is an excellent way to expand your market share and brand visibility.

We listened to exhibitor feedback at the 2013 AICI Global Conference and below are some new AICI exhibit/sponsor features you’ll notice this year in Washington, D.C.!

New This Year

More time with attendees
Exhibitors will now get over 16 hours of time with attendees as compared to 6 hours at past conferences! That’s 10 more hours of time to connect and collaborate with your future customers! We’ve also added a Thursday night Opening Reception to the exhibit area with food, cocktails, and music to encourage relaxed opportunities for you to engage with attendees!

The exhibit hall will be located in a high traffic area, in a foyer near registration and the General Session. Attendees MUST walk by your booths to get to any session and registration. Reception, Breakfast, and Break stations will be spread throughout the exhibit hall, to encourage foot traffic around the entire space, instead of having one buffet line in one area.

More sponsorship opportunities
Get your name in front of AICI attendees! We’ve modified sponsorship opportunities this year, decreasing costs and adding sponsorship options. New options include opportunities for you to host an internet café, sponsor a keynote speaker, sponsor the hotel guest room keys, and sponsor the Opening Reception. See the full list of sponsorship opportunities on page 3.
