LOUISVILLE, KY — Angi Van Berg, CEM, Vice President of Trade Show Sales for Louisville Tourism, was one of three individuals awarded the Chapter Merit Award by the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE). The award recognizes IAEE members whose ideas and/or work have benefited IAEE as an organization in some special way, and is generally reserved for those who have stepped forward at the chapter/local level.
Van Berg was instrumental in re-launching the IAEE Mid-South Chapter in September 2017. The chapter has approximately 60 members encompassing Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and Michigan.
“We received outstanding nominations for IAEE members who are going above and beyond to make a difference in our association and our industry,” said IAEE Awards Committee Chairperson Patricia Farias Barlow, CEM. “We are proud to honor them with these awards, and grateful to the IAEE members who take the time and effort to put forth their nominations.”
Van Berg will be honored during the IAEE Expo! Expo! Annual Meeting & Exhibition, which will be held Dec. 11-13 in New Orleans, LA.
