Board members will be on hand to give you suggestions for education that is most relevant to you and your company.

Not-So-Silent Auction & Presidents Gala

Our Not-So-Silent Auction kicks off the Thursday evening festivities with the chance to do some holiday shopping. But the auction is part of a mission. It feeds the EDPA Foundation which provides scholarships to the next generation of industry families, supports universities that prepare future exhibit professionals, and gives financial assistance to our colleagues in a time of need.

The Gala Reception, which follows the auction, is a celebration of what EDPA and its members have accomplished throughout the year. In addition to an unforgettable dinner, the Gala features awards presentations, recognizing the excellence of the work that makes our members shine—and that keeps our clients choosing to engage in face-to-face experiences.
