Top five exhibiting benefits
1. You’ll reach influential design professionals seeking an edge
Attendees run the gamut:
Principals controlling important purchasing budgets
Entrepreneurial leaders of startup firms
Design professionals for major corporations
Students making tomorrow’s decisions
2. You’ll be sought out for information and advice
Our attendees want your expertise and information, your insight into industry trends, and your access to the newest products and services. In fact, architectural decision makers say, in addition to consulting with peers, building product manufacturers are their second greatest influencer when conducting research on products and materials.
3. It’s your chance to show off
Exhibitors bring their A-game, along with dynamic displays showcasing new materials, methods, and technology. We have the setup and maintenance assistance to help you make it happen.
4. You’ll be an essential part of each day’s programming
Expo time is “baked in” to the convention schedule and flow. When the expo floor is open, classes and activities elsewhere are minimized.
5. It’s easy to customize
Scale your Expo experience to fit your target market. You’ll find a broad scope of desirable floor locations, multiple event promotion options, and prominent sponsorship opportunities that go far beyond the basics.
