Event Innovators Exchange (EIX)

The Event Innovators Exchange (EIX) is a gathering of creative and tactical people who are looking to build and iterate on their ideas. Ideas usually get stronger when shared, so we created an environment to seed ideas and help them grow into something real.

The EIX is designed to help association event planners and marketers be innovative with their events.

Each EIX focuses on:

  • modeling innovative format, like Idea Jams or virtual sessions;
  • sharing tips and ideas to host successful live and virtual events;
  • optimizing events to deliver on furthering the goals of the organization and constituents;
  • and providing a space for networking and collaboration with peers.
