Event returns to Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, for 2018 and 2020

Fort Atkinson, WI (January 12, 2017) – The International Airport Equipment Manufacturers Association (IAEMA) and Ground Support Worldwide magazine will continue their partnership to produce the world’s largest GSE-only Expos in 2018 and 2020. The International Airport GSE Expo will be held October 2-4, 2018 and October 20-22, 2020. The Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, will host both events. 

“Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback from exhibitors and attendees at our 2016 Expo, we have contracted with the Rio for our next two events to provide the best possible dates and room rates for our guests,” says Sue Ralston, show director, International Airport GSE Expo. 

The 2016 Expo drew nearly 2,400 industry professionals and marked the inaugural event co-presented by IAEMA and Ground Support Worldwide magazine. Ralston says the two partners plan to enhance the attendee/exhibitor experience with improvements ranging from longer registration hours, improved traffic flow, to expansion of the outdoor exhibit space and live-demonstration areas.

“We will continue to have all indoor exhibits located in the temperature-controlled, temporary building space, providing close proximity to the outdoor equipment displays and demonstration areas,” Ralston adds.

Floor plan and space application process is expected to begin later this spring, with booth assignments to follow shortly thereafter.

Ralston encourages attendees to look for 2018 GSE Expo information in Ground Support Worldwide magazine and its portal website,
