Corcoran Expositions has created a new agreement to provide exhibit and sponsorship management for the TMS Annual Meeting and Exhibition hosted by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society.

Corcoran Expositions has produced 700-plus conventions in 100 cities over the past 26 years.

“This year marks the 30th anniversary of the TMS Annual Meeting Exhibition," says James Robinaon, executive director, TMS. In service of the global minerals, metals, and materials industries, we at TMS believe that our new collaboration with Corcoran represents an opportunity to take our exhibition to another level for the greater benefit of the thousands of professional scientists and engineers that we represent."

Exhibit and sponsorship management services with begin with the 2018 show, taking place in Phoenix.

“TMS has a rich 146-year history and continues to evolve with its member base and changing technologies. It is exciting to have a dynamic client with such an extensive reach in the scientific and engineering communities,” says Carly DiVito, longtime Corcoran show manager who will oversee the exhibit sales and management program for TMS. “We at Corcoran are looking forward to a great partnership.”

It’s always good to have market data for a glimpse at what’s happening in the meetings and events industry and know there are credentials for professionals to work toward. The Events Industry Council (EIC) has released its 2022 Q1 Global Business Events Barometer earlier this week and announced its inaugural class of CMP Fellows this spring.

 

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.
