The Hughes Group Announces Newly Developed Conference Economics Concept FutureShow® Increases Growth and Profitability for Show Organizers

COLUMBIA, Md., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hughes Group, a leading provider of exhibits, event management and environments, today announced the development of a new model for conference economics, focused on content-driven, face-to-face communications and environments that generate better profitability and growth for organizers and sponsors of small-to-medium sized exhibitions.

In a shift away from traditional conference and exhibition models, the FutureShow® concept employs focused content and engagement between show organizers, sponsors, members/attendees, speakers and contributors to "connect with success."  Show organizers can deliver increased value to all event participants, sponsors and exhibitors, at significantly lower costs, resulting in increased revenues, a higher net profit, and increased loyalty among sponsors and participants.

"Ed Jones has a unique perspective on how the economics of face-to-face conferences and events work," said Bob Hughes, president, the Hughes Group.  "He contributed a communications plan that makes the concept easy to understand."

"The FutureShow is based on sound principles of mutual engagement among all entities in a unique conference environment," commented Ed Jones, president, Constellation Communication Corp.  "It is an easy, effective solution for a conference that needs a lift.  I am happy to help Bob communicate the value of this great concept to the many who will find it beneficial."
