The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has responded to UK member feedback and increased its international representation by joining the International Federation of Exhibition and Event Services (IFES).IFES will have two stands at retail trade exhibition Euroshop 2011 in Germany, where it will represent its 133 members from over 32 countries. There will be presentations from three National Association Partners at the show, including one by ESSA."Most ESSA members are now operating on an international stage, and by joining IFES and having the opportunity to present at Euroshop enables us to take our message out to a wider audience," said ESSA director, Chris Skeith.Got an EN story?
