Tradeshow Trends
Growth Spurt Continues Into the First Quarter LOS ANGELES -
Tradeshow managers were free to strut their stuff as the year of the rooster started off with a bang. Tradeshows held in January, February and March of 2005 improved in every index over 2004.

Tradeshow Week


With close to 5000 tradeshows planned for 2005* in the United States and Canada, there is a 2.3% increase in the number of shows over last year. Expositions will showcase 1.2 million exhibiting companies using 352 million net square feet of exhibit space, with approximately 50.6 million attendees. These figures point to the fundamentals of doing business: the best way to build customer relationships is to meet face-to-face. While the internet and other mediums provide channels for reaching your customers – tradeshows, conferences, seminars and expos are essential to your marketing mix.
