The Business Lounge at VenueConnect

IAVM has created a new way for business to get done at VenueConnect. We realize that consultants, architects and designers don’t necessarily need a large booth on the show floor but still want a presence throughout VenueConnect. The Business Lounge will offer a business experience in a more intimate environment providing the opportunity to promote your brand and invite prospects and customers to meet for networking and light conversations during the trade show.
