The 2013 meeting of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) will be held this upcoming weekend, from August 3rd-6th in Atlanta and looks to feature a number of recreational activities as well as some presentations by a few speakers and, of course, trade show exhibits with exhibitors of all kinds around the industry.
The conference and expo will be featuring over 100 different classes, seminars and presentations which makes it an excellent place for executives to learn more about the industry, stay up to date on trends and network with other leaders.
But, it’s not going to be all work and no play at this trade show and conference. There are a number of recreational opportunities lined up as well. They range from golfing and swimming to spending a day at the spa or even lending a hand to help spruce up a few houses in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s former Atlanta neighborhood. Attendees will have the opportunity to network, learn, relax, have fun and even make a concrete difference in the community.
The keynote speaker at the conference will be Susan Cain, whose TED talk presentation on how we can learn from introverts to be more productive and successful has over 3 million views. The presentation will be immediately preceding the opening of the trade show floor and there will be many trade show exhibits from vendors and suppliers and companies of all kinds, including technology companies, shipping and storage companies and more.
On the closing day, Dan Heath will present a talk on decision making. The presentation will focus on how to make better decisions with better information and more decisiveness.
The trade show and conference will then wrap up with a closing celebration in Centennial Park that will feature live music from the World Classic Rockers which counts among its members former bandmates Journey, Boston, Santana, Steppenwolf and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
