WASHINGTON— ASAE announces Destination Cleveland has signed-on as a Corporate Partner in its Alliance Partnership Program.

“We are excited to have Destination Cleveland join as a Corporate Partner,” said ASAE President and CEO John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE. “Destination Cleveland is a dedicated supporter of our community, and this partnership will provide our members a great opportunity to learn more about how Cleveland has expanded its facilities and overall infrastructure to better serve and host association meetings and conventions.”

The Alliance Partnership Program was developed to provide the industry partner community with opportunities to align itself with ASAE and the association sector through customized marketing platforms. It also offers partners the chance to help build and maintain year-round relationships with ASAE members and nonprofit communities worldwide. 

“ASAE is a key player in the meetings industry, and we’re excited to be a new Corporate Partner,” says David Gilbert, president and CEO of Destination Cleveland. “Our extensive and modern meetings and convention package, combined with a distinct visitor experience, increasingly draws demand to meet in Cleveland. This partnership allows us to garner a deeper understanding of the association audience, expands our reach through the organization’s high caliber events and enables our team to better tailor solutions. With the addition of these valuable resources, we can continue to change perceptions of Cleveland and, ultimately, attract even more meetings and conventions to our city.”
