Who is Your Audience?

Put your products directly into the hands of the more than 3,000 stakeholders and decision makers from across the state who attend the TxA conference.

Times are changing fast. Exhibiting costs are rising. Attendee behaviors are shifting. Executive management is pressing you for trade show cost justification and ROI. And, if you’re like most, you haven’t received formal exhibiting education — and don’t have a lot of time to seek it out. The following articles and blog posts from “Competitive Edge” provide a crash-course on trade show success. They are a quick-read, informative, and loaded with useful information and practical knowledge.
