Upcoming AABP Events
AABP Exchange of New Event Ideas
PIE Theme - New Events!
For the next exchange, we're asking for New Event Ideas. Events continue to grow as generating a greater proportion of revenue. What new events have you tried this year, and how did they work? Give us the details, good and bad, on how your new idea worked.
Please email your exchange submission by August 31, 2016 to AABP Staff at AABP Staff. You can also submit a JPG, Word, Excel or PowerPoint file with relevant content to be included, if it's less than 4mb. If you don't have the suggested topic, send something else (like a house ad, editorial calendar, etc.) and we'll include you.
