The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has announced an historic partnership with the University of Lincoln to support and provide resources for undergraduates studying Design for Exhibition & Museums, within the university’s School of Architecture & Design.

The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) is preparing to unveil a year of special events and activities to mark the association’s tenth anniversary in 2017. Founded in 2007 with the merger of the Association of Exhibition Contractors (AEC) and British Event Contractors Association (BECA), ESSA has faced a decade of challenges from within and outside the industry on behalf of its members, whilst building an enviable portfolio of member benefits and services, from legal and H&S helplines to e-learning resources and discounted rates on insurance.

The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has announced the appointment of a new chair and vice-chair for the association’s board. Current chair, Andrew Kennedy of Perton Signs, is stepping down from the post after 2 years, and is handing the torch to current association vice-chair Chris Criscione, MD of Equinox Design. Board member Martin Cairns, commercial director Reeds Carpets, succeeds Criscione as vice-chair.

The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has announced that it will be partnering with the Association of Event Organisers (AEO) for a third year, extending its support beyond the 2017 FaceTime Exhibitor Masterclasses to include the two flagship AEO events, AEO Forums and AEO Conference.
