Presidents Letter 2014

Hello Columbus Special Event Professionals,

Did you know that 98% of ISES Members report doing business with other ISES members? Did you know our member list grows each month with more prestigious companies and people from Columbus? We have members from Cameron Mitchell’s, Bob Evans, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, The Columbus Museum of Art, The OSU Wexner Center, Event Source, Live! Technologies, Metro Cuisine, Two Caterers, The OSU Alumni Association, The City of Dublin, The Columbus Convention Center, Experience Columbus, and THAT’S JUST THE BOARD! 


I’m very proud to belong to a group that is so helpful in supporting me in surviving the roller coaster industry we live in. It’s so great to gather with others that not only help you do business but also help with networking, industry issues and education (and like to have fun!)

We get discounts for printing, rental cars, and offer cross functional discounts within our membership, but the people that I know and love are the best benefit without a doubt. We are attending and participating in National educational programs that bring back great ideas in how to make our membership even more valuable. 

In an effort to increase the value of your membership, or future membership, we ask you to complete a very simple, 6 question survey.  Please CLICK HERE

Please come by, see us, talk to us let us support you too! We are all in this together! Be a part of something bigger than yourself, it will make a world of difference!
