Following the successful staging of Interwire 2023, the WAI is now focused on the 2024 WAI Operations Summit & Wire Expo (Wire Expo), and it all starts with the Points Meeting, which is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 11.
The Association will return June 11-12, 2024, to the Mohegan Sun & Casino Resort in Uncasville, Connecticut. WAI ably hosted Wire Expo 2016 and had been scheduled to do so again in 2020 before Covid upended those plans.
The Wire Expo show floor saw a total of 240 companies represented on the show floor in 2022, and WAI Director of Sales Shannon Timme, CEM, wants companies interested in being there in 2024 to be prepared for the Points Meeting. Exhibitors must be in good standing and have submitted their contract with full payment to participate.
The Points Meeting determines the order in which exhibitors get to choose a location. The following parameters affect the points system: years of exhibiting, square footage (or size) of stands and continuity of years exhibiting.
Points for the system include exhibit space at WAI’s Wire Expo and Interwire shows. Exhibitors must have proof of insurance before they can take part in the Points Meeting (insurance is not required). Exhibitors can view the 2024 floor plan and submit their choices for booth space through the show website, wireexpo24.com, where the full list of points can also be viewed.
