Member Benefits

Member BenefitsEACA members derive advantages from the only industry association that represents the interests of the “non-official” exhibit service providers.    We advocate to show organizers and general service contractors on behalf of all EACs to level the playing field for all concerned and to make sure you have unfettered access to servicing your client on the showfloor.  

The EACA is currently made up of more than 200 corporate members who enjoy these member benefits:

  • Advocacy. The EACA advocates for the interests of all EACs and exhibit service companies at national industry meetings
  • Best Practices. The EACA identifies and publishes Exhibit/Event Industry Best Practices, and promotes them to all industry stakeholders.
  • Business Development. The EACA provides business development education and customer service programs for our members,.
  • Stand Out from the Crowd. EACA members join our community to enhance their visibility to potential exhibitor clients who use the EACA site to source potential service providers.

  • Be in the Know. EACA collects budget data, case studies, industry studies, and educational articles to the advantage of our community of EACs.
  • Increase Revenues/Save Money.
