Major Convention Bonus -  IBA Keynote Speaker Richard Aaron

Richard Aaron


I can't tell you how excited I am that Richard Aaron is our keynote speaker at the IBA Convention. Y'all may not know Richard, but having him keynote for us is a major coup for the IBA. It was life changing for me to hear Richard speak.  I am certain he will impact your life as well.  (By the way, have you registered for the IBA Convention  yet?)

I don't know anyone, except maybe Treb Heining, who is as respected in the Balloon Industry, the way Richard is in the Event Industry. While Treb is considered a guru and visionary in our world, Richard is considered THE Event Industry guru and visionary. Both are hailed as pioneers in creating the modern balloon and event professions as we know them today.

To take things a step further, not only has Richard produced literally thousands of Fortune 500 events, he has his finger in every piece of the Event and Hospitality Industry pies. This is so important, because part of his life's work is to create better consistency, and therefore excellence, among the various associated industries.... and this includes the Balloon Industry!

If you join The Special Event Society (ISES), Richard Aaron's influence will be there. If you join Meeting Planners international (MPI), Richard Aaron's influence will be there. If you take out a subscription to Special Event Magazine, Richard Aaron's influence will be there.

Richard is an incredibly dynamic and positive speaker. I kid you not!  Richard will light a flame under you so hot you will want to go out and conquer the world.  I could go on and on, but the main thing is, DON'T MISS RICHARD AARON.
