Shepard Kicks Off Partnership with Soles4Souls at Expo! Expo!

For more than 100 years, Shepard has operated on a culture of service—service to our customers, each other, and the communities in which we work and live. Shepard GO (Giving Outwardly) is our philanthropic program that serves as a foundational component of who we are. As Shepard expands, adding new customers, colleagues, and communities, we are extending Shepard GO by enlisting the help of families, friends, and industry peers.

This year, at the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) Expo! Expo!, we are thrilled to be kicking off our partnership with Soles4Souls, an organization that provides relief and support to those in need. 

People living in poverty want a better life, but many lack sustainable resources to accomplish that all-important next step. At Soles4Souls, they turn unwanted shoes and clothing into opportunities, by keeping them from going to waste and putting them to good use – providing relief, creating jobs, and empowering people to break the cycle of poverty.


Your next step can help someone take theirs… 

Heading to IAEE Expo! Expo! Next month? Let us know so we can plan to connect. Then, we invite you to visit us at booth #738 and tell us how you plan to move forward in this new era for events in 2022 and beyond. By sharing your success tips with our community, you will be helping make a contribution to Soles4Souls and be entered to win a pair of one-of-a-kind celebrity artist-designed shoes. 

“As a longstanding supporter of Shepard’s philanthropic efforts, I am so pleased to be able to provide a platform for our Expo! Expo! community to get involved with Soles4Souls.” says CEO, Steve Basch. “As event industry professionals, we know the incredible power of lifting people up and providing them with resources can be the key to taking that step towards a better life. By supporting the partnership between Shepard and Soles4Souls by sharing your next steps for success, we can all help someone in need take theirs.”
