The National Trade Show Alliance was founded in response to the challenges of individuals in the Live Events community. Our community members are those whose livelihood comes from the work created by in-person events,

We welcome all who have made their careers in the Live Events Industry and those interested in the field of live events to consider membership in our organization. Individual Membership is free.  We provide not only a sense of community but also present educational opportunities and career inspiration.

Our goal is to offer industry members benefits such as networking opportunities to build resources and relationships, employment opportunities through Job boards, business growth and succession planning with Goldman Sachs 10K Small Businesses, live meetups, educational workshops and webinars, industry information and updates,

We work to shine the light on our Industry Associations, Trades and Advocacy Groups.  To build a pathway for educational and growth opportunities starting with partnerships at the high school level, providing career inspiration and access to pre-apprenticeship programs.  Our efforts to prepare eligible candidates for the DOL Registered Apprenticeship Program, the Carpenter’s Apprenticeship Program and other Trade Apprenticeship Programs will build a vetted workforce pool ready to advance their careers with varied certifications programs offered by our industry associations.  Together we can set the bar for a highly skilled next generation workforce for our industry.

We welcome your participation, value your membership and look forward to working with you on this journey to raise awareness for the live events industry.
