    KSAE is changing things up and the 2016 KSAE Conference and Expo will be your one stop shop for exposure, networking, promotion and education. KSAE has gone from an individual membership structure to an organizational structure.

    What does this mean for you?  KSAE membership is expected to triple, meaning KSAE will help you create even more connections upon which you can grow your business.  The entire staff of our Kansas association members will now be active members of KSAE which will make it easier to build on relationships with meeting planners and other decision makers you can do business with.

    Join us on Friday, December 9th, 2016 from 10-11:00am at the DoubleTree by Hilton Lawrence for our EXCHANGE event. This one-hour “speed dating” business event with efficient, effective one-on-one appointments is a not-to-be-missed opportunity. EXCHANGE allows association executives/meeting professionals and exhibitors to meet one-on-one in a highly productive environment. 

    In addition to the EXCHANGE event, KSAE is excited to provide a traditional opportunity to mingle with your association industry friends and introduce your products and services on Thursday, December 8th from 11:00am-1:30pm at the KSAE Expo and Lunch.  

    As an exhibitor you will be provided one 6 foot table. KSAE will provide all food, beverages and prizes for this outstanding event, allowing you to mingle, network and promote your products and services.
