The National Trade Show Alliance was founded in response to the challenges of individuals in our trade show community. Our community members are those whose livelihood comes from the work created by in-person events such as trade shows, conferences, exhibitions, and meetings.

By creating a centralized platform, the National Trade Show Alliance will help community members find the support and resources they need right now and for their growth in the future. We work in partnership with other organizations to provide a central point to share the good works and advocacy being done by our many allied industry associations.

The “Together Let’s Be the Voice” campaign will help build awareness of our industry. Serving as a contact point to connect media with a wide variety of human-interest stories, we will gain visibility by shining a spotlight on our vast talents, skills, and strengths.

The National Trade Show Alliance will contribute to, and make accessible, GAP PLAN guidance for opening business events safely, both regionally and nationally.
