“Our membership in ISES is one of our most effective business development tools. Besides meeting and interacting with industry professionals we might not otherwise have the chance to meet, we have built relationships with clients that we never would have developed without ISES. Our revenues are many times our dues. We are not just seen as a vendor, we are a trusted advisor and colleague”. – Paul Neuman, President, Neuman’s

“ISES has been an integral part of my career transition into the Special Events Industry. My active involvement in the NY Metro Chapter has enabled me to build several key relationships that have directly resulted in freelance work.  And, my election to the Board of Directors has absolutely elevated my profile in the industry allowing me to liaise with leaders in our field that I would not otherwise have access to”. Beth Eisgrau-Heller, Independent Event Planner
