EXHIBITOR Magazine Announces Top U.S. Trade Show and Event Cities
10/17/2018
EXHIBITOR magazine, the award-winning leader in trade show and corporate event marketing education, has released the results of its 2018 Travel and Accommodations Survey. According to those results, face-to-face marketers spend an average of nearly seven weeks per year traveling to trade shows and corporate events in cities across the globe. The survey, which queried nearly 200 exhibit and event professionals, sought to determine what cities those marketers are frequenting, as well as which are among their favorite business-travel destinations.

“Not surprisingly, the most popular cities for trade show- and event-related travel include Las Vegas, Orlando, Chicago, New Orleans, and Washington, DC,” said Travis Stanton, editor of EXHIBITOR. “But when asked what about their favorite cities to visit for exhibitions and corporate events, respondents added San Diego, Nashville, San Francisco, Boston, and Austin, TX, to the aforementioned hot spots.”

The 20 most popular trade show and event destinations, as well as the 20 cities cited most frequently as favorite business-travel destinations, are ranked below, based on respondents’ input.
