International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE)

IAEE is a professional association that provides networking opportunities and continuing education in the worldwide exhibition and trade show industry. IAEE serves more than 6,000 members in 52 countries, with only one student chapter – at UNLV. Our chapter strives to help smooth the transition from student to professional by providing behind-the-scene tours and networking opportunities with industry professionals. The IAEE UNLV Student Chapter partners with the PCMA UNLV Student Chapter for various events and activities to enhance membership value.

Getting Involved

The cost is $35 per year for student memberships. Applications are available online.

Who Should Join?

This club should be considered by Meetings and Events Management majors who are interested in supplementing their trade show and exhibition education. However, the association is open to any students.


Club meetings include behind-the-scene tours at venues and trade shows in town as well as networking events. The associations’ annual meeting is held every December. The local Southwest Professional Chapter holds events throughout the year in Las Vegas and California.
