CHICAGO, Ill. — The Trade Show Exhibitors Association (TSEA) announced its first 2011 Face-to-Face Connections,its hosted buyer event, will take place at the Hyatt McCormick Place in Chicago April 20-22, 2011. Based on the rousing success of its three 2010 events, three more are scheduled for 2011.

Face-to-Face Connections, developed by TSEA, brings buyers and sellers together to determine if there is the potential for a business match. In an efficient and cost effective way, service providers to the exhibit and event industry, and service seekers, meet in pre-planned sessions that are private, focused and results-oriented. Think of it as “speed networking” for the exhibit and event marketing industry.

Both Guests and Hosts have been equally complimentary about the event. A Spring 2010 Guest enthused, “A highly worthwhile, efficient and, dare I say, enjoyable way to meet and evaluate vendors!” and 97 percent of all previous guests would recommend the F2F Connections™ to a colleague. “Great event and opportunity to have discussions with so many prospects in a short time frame” commended a Winter 2010 Host and 93% of all Hosts would participate in a future Face-to-Face Connections.

“We’re very pleased to announce the dates for all three of our 2011 events. The one in April will be followed by ones in September and December, giving both buyers (Guests) and vendors (Hosts) multiple opportunities to interact and do business,” said Margit Weisgal, CEO & President of TSEA

Companies interested in participating as either Hosts (Service providers) or Guests (Service seekers) should visit or call (312) 842-8732 for more information.
