Convention and Trade Show Management

Convention and Trade Show Management

Overview

The 4,608 convention and trade show management services in the US charge fees to plan, organize, promote, and manage a variety of events, including business shows, trade shows, conventions, conferences, and meetings. General Service Contractors (GSC), which coordinate the set-up and tear-down of trade shows, generate the majority of revenue and profits from material handling fees charged to exhibitors.

Competition from Digital Communications

Conventions and trade shows compete with alternative and more flexible forms of communication, such as video conferences, webinars, and other digital vehicles.

Hybrid Meetings

The aftermath of travel budget reductions due to the last recession has increased the popularity of hybrid meetings.
