Corcoran is proud to announced new agreements to manage the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) show and the Experimental Biology (EB) conference and expo.

Corcoran will provide exhibit sales and management services for the AOSSM Annual Meeting starting in 2018. The show will take place in San Diego, California.

“When we made the decision to outsource our exhibition sales and management, Corcoran was the first partner that came to mind,” said Greg Dummer, Chief Executive Officer, American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. “Having worked with them previously with excellent results, I know that Corcoran will seamlessly integrate into our overall team and manage our exhibition with expertise and superior customer care. We look forward to a great partnership and the continued growth and development of the AOSSM Annual Meeting.”

The Experimental Biology conference and expo is hosted by five scientific societies and Corcoran will be responsible for the event’s exhibit sales program, exhibitor showcase and sponsorship program starting with the 2018 show taking place in San Diego, California.

“Corcoran has seen success in growing exhibit programs in both the Scientific and Medical Sectors. Last month we completed the onsite renewal program for Experimental Biology, resulting in a solid foundation for us to grow the program in the coming year,” said Noreen Burke, Director of Business Development at Corcoran Expositions. “We will be introducing our onsite renewal program to AOSSM exhibitors this summer. Our goal for EB and AOSSM is to familiarize a new group of prospects that we have identified as having strong exhibit potential with these viable market opportunities.”

Corcoran Partners with The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS)

We are excited to announce Corcoran has been retained by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society to provide exhibit and sponsorship management services for the TMS Annual Meeting and Exhibition.

“This year marks the 30th anniversary of the TMS Annual Meeting Exhibition. In service of the global minerals, metals, and materials industries, we at TMS believe that our new collaboration with Corcoran represents an opportunity to take our exhibition to another level for the greater benefit of the thousands of professional scientists and engineers that we represent,” said James Robinson, TMS Executive Director.

Corcoran will provide exhibit and sponsorship management services beginning with the 2018 show, taking place in Phoenix, Arizona.

“TMS has a rich 146-year history and continues to evolve with its member base and changing technologies.  It is exciting to have a dynamic client with such an extensive reach in the scientific and engineering communities,” said Carly DiVito, longtime Corcoran show manager who will oversee the exhibit sales and management program for TMS. “We at Corcoran are looking forward to a great partnership.”

This company wants its long-term employees to take paid leave -- for three full months.

Your inclination is probably to keep your veteran employees close, but Corcoran Expositions takes the opposite approach. It sends them away. Any employee who reaches 10 years with the Chicago-based company gets three months off, paid, with no questions asked.

“There’s just all kinds of really good things that come from it,” owner Tom Corcoran said. “If you think about clients, a long-term client relationship starts with long-term employee relationships…. It makes for a better show.”

Corcoran, which has 35 employees, has offered the benefit for about 10 years now; so far, 12 employees have taken advantage of it. One of them took a motorcycle ride across the United States; another stayed home with a new baby “and thought it was the greatest thing,” Corcoran said. “Lots and lots of family time, which is really important.”
