Recipients are recognized for significant contributions in service to the IAEE Chairman by helping grow both national and international relationships.

“Skip is one of those rare individuals who quietly gives significant amounts of his time, energy, and talents. He has done so for many years and has helped make IAEE what it is today,’ said Jeff Price, chairman of IAEE. “Over the past two years, Skip labored along with IAEE’s ROI Task Force to develop a set of ROI measurement tools that will be unveiled during the 2008 PCMA Annual Meeting in Seattle. Skip distinguished himself with his outstanding contributions, and I am delighted to honor him with this award.”

“I sincerely thank IAEE and Chairman Jeff Price for this notable award, and I am proud to be a part of the important work and initiatives of the Association,” commented Mr. Cox. “I share this honor with Exhibit Surveys’ gifted and dedicated employees who worked diligently to develop and test many of the formulas used in the ROI Tool Kit, and who worked on the development of the innovative ROI Tool Kit web site. My hope is that both exhibit managers and show organizers will take full advantage of this free access to basic ROI measurement. I applaud CEIR, PCMA, and
IAEE, for their collaborative and progressive approach to supporting the industry, and look forward to more opportunities to contribute in the coming years.”

In 2007 he donated his time, and that of his staff, to develop an ROI (Return On Investment) calculator, an online planning and measurement tool for organizers and exhibitors.
