EXHIBITOR magazine is the undisputed authority in all aspects of trade show and event marketing. Our mission is to provide exhibit and event marketing professionals with the tools and education to produce high performance programs with measurable results.

Each month, our full-time editorial staff presents cutting-edge trade show marketing ideas that work, case studies that showcase the secrets of the most successful exhibit programs, in-depth how-to articles, and much more.

EXHIBITOR's leadership position has been achieved through our commitment to education since 1987. Our national conference, EXHIBITOR Show, is the exhibit and event industry's highest-rated educational event, and each year we offer four EXHIBITORFastTrak conferences throughout the country, plus our new EXHIBITOR eTrak online learning sessions, and the acclaimed GRAVITY FREE Multidisciplinary Design Conference.

EXHIBITOR magazine sets the standard for recognizing trade show and event marketing excellence with an array of prestigious Awards, including the Exhibit Design Awards, Sizzle Awards, Corporate Event Awards, All-Star Awards, and EXHIBITOR SHOW Awards.
