SAE International World Congress Garners First Place Awards

WARRENDALE, Pa., Jan. 20, 2006 -

SAE International’s 2005 World Congress won two first-place awards from the International Association of Exhibition Management for excellence in show design and promotional materials.

Top recognition was given to SAE International in the category of Brand Design Development for its use of an original piece of 100th anniversary artwork in its Centennial Campaign. 

The SAE 2005 World Congress served as a launchpad to unveil the artwork, a painting by Pittsburgh native John Glover designed to honor the individuals and organizations that contributed to the success of SAE International in its first century.  The painting was incorporated into promotional pieces for the event, including a commemorative coffee-table book and a coin.

The SAE 2005 World Congress Show Daily also took home first prize for its up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of the convention.  News items and stories promoting technical sessions and products of note from exhibiting companies were featured in the publication.

The competition involved the judging of 204 entries.  The SAE 2005 World Congress, held at Cobo Hall in Detroit, Mich., was recognized in the category of shows more than 150,000 net square feet in size (the category of the largest shows).
