Collaboration is Key!
AtÂ Family History Expos (FHE), collaboration with genealogical, lineage, and historical societies as well as libraries, family history centers, and vendors is key to providing the best experience for our Expo attendees. From a conference planning perspective, our goal is to provide the best experience possible for our attendees to ensure that they have their questions answered and have the best possible learning and sharing experiences by putting them in contact with people who can help them. These types of experiences would never be possible without collaboration from our many friends across the country who work in a variety of institutions and organizations and come to share the benefit of their knowledge with others.
FHE provides organizations and individuals an opportunity to showcase their holdings, services, and talents in the fields of genealogy, technology, and history by giving them opportunities via our Expos, syllabus, and website advertising. Bringing together the local community with local and national speakers and vendors creates a synergy that is unable to be duplicated elsewhere.
What works well?
This collaboration is a learning experience for everyone involved. Working with the local and national organizations and vendors gives each side a chance to understand the needs and wants of the other always with the focus of providing the best outcome for the attendees and teachers/vendors alike.
What needs improvement?
We are always looking for knowledgeable individuals to share their experiences and expertise with our Expo attendees. Do you have a new product you would like to put in front of an audience? Consider vending in our exhibit hall. Even if you do not have something for sale â€“ it is a great way to show off what your organization has to offer! Would you like to give attendees the benefit of your expertise in genealogy? Submit lecture topics through our Call for Papers â€“ the conference schedule is on our website at http://www.fhexpos.com/expos/ or sign up to volunteer for our Ask-The-Pros at the Expos booth and help with individual conference attendees research problems.
Looking forward to seeing you at the Expo!
