BiZBash Announces New Name and Venue for its Annual Event and Meeting Industry Trade Show

New York, New York - February 2, 2004 - BiZBash Media is re-branding its annual trade show for the New York event and meeting industry with a new name and new venue for 2004. The BiZBash Event Style Show 04 (formerly the BiZBash Meeting & Event Expo) will be held at Pier 94, October 14 and 15, 2004.

The new name signifies BiZBash as the leader in event style and trends, and it will be accompanied by a re-branding campaign by Dana Communications, which emphasizes the BiZBash Event Style Show’s market place as the best showcase of new ideas in the event planning and marketing industry.

The venue selection is another step towards expanding BiZBash’s reach. “We selected Pier 94 as our new venue because it provides an exciting opportunity to expand the BiZBash Event Style Show for exhibitors and attendees,” says David Adler, CEO and founder of BiZBash Media. Pier 94 also hosts events including the Architectural Digest show, ENK Fashion Coterie trade show and the GLM gift show.

The show is the ultimate gathering of professional event and meeting planners, and attracts more than 2,500 attendees each year. The show features the hottest ideas and resources for the next season of events, from product launches to fashion shows to political conventions.

The fourth annual BiZBash Event Style Show will feature more than 200 exhibitors, who showcase event resources including invitations, orchestras, floral arrangements, tents and catering trays. The latest production, audiovisual and lighting techniques will also be showcased.
