Those that regularly attend the IRE know it’s well put together and remains among the premier industry trade exhibitions in the world with growing popularity. Now the rest of the exhibitor-show world is paying attention.

Organizers of the IRE that work with Informa Exhibitions recently received several designations for IRE shows in prior years.

IRE’s Lisa Allen received the Show Manager of the Year award for the 2016 IRE in Orlando. The entire IRE team at Informa was also recognized as one of the Top 25 Fastest Growing Shows for the 2016 IRE in Orlando. It was the second year in a row that the IRE was acknowledged by The Expo Group and Trade Show News Network (TSNN) for an increase in net square footage.

The awards were presented by the TSNN at the organization’s annual gathering in Atlantic City last October. The TSNN was established in 1996 and is regarded as the leading news and digital information resource for 25,000 trade shows, exhibitions and professional events for various industries around the world.
