Bethesda, Md. (Oct. 1, 2008) – is now listing the number of non-conference events that associations hold each year in their profiles.

Although has listed the dates and locations of annual conferences on each association’s profile, these other important events and conferences add further insight to how associations manage their meetings. Non-conference events are counted toward the total listed number if the attendance exceeds 100 and if it is not considered to be a major conference for the association.

The listing of this information was introduced in the 2008 edition of the National Trade and Professional Associations directory. While users will not be able to search for associations with non-conference events, they will be able to see the number in an association’s listed if it provided the information.
