Manager of Marketing and PR
a2z, Inc. and TSEA Partner to Create Educational Portal for the Exhibit Industry
a2z, Inc. and the Trade Show Exhibitors Association (TSEA) will be working together to create an online resource for the exhibition industry that will offer on-demand continuing education to exhibitors. This new educational portal, which will become part of TSEA's website, http://www.tsea.org/, is expected to be up and running by the first quarter of 2001. The training courses available through the portal will help teach exhibitors how to get the most out of their exhibition experience.
a2z, Inc. will be providing online marketing tools, Internet expertise, and the technology to create the educational portal, while TSEA will take charge of adding course offerings and other content. TSEA will be using a2z Inc's a2zClass™ solution to power the portal, which will allow them to create a website with multiple course offerings-- an online university of sorts. a2zClass™ will also give TSEA the capability to create multiple educational tracks, generate detailed reports, and make changes to the portal at any time they wish. Another feature of a2zClass™ lets students track their progress and see which courses they have taken.
In addition to this technical help, a2z, Inc.'s Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Michael Hatch, will be developing one or more of the initial educational programs for the portal. Hatch has over 20 years of exhibit management and trade show marketing experience.
