Beware of Expo Scams

It has been brought to our attention that scam artists, fraudulent companies, and vendors not contracted by TxA have been targeting exhibitors participating in tradeshows across the country. Be careful of companies emailing and posing as vendors for our event. Some scams include housing, mailing lists, directory listings, and onsite services.

TxA never sells attendee lists. 

If you are contacted by any outside company you find suspicious or are unsure whether they are a legitimate authorized vendor for this event, please contact Tod Stehling immediately, and if possible include any e-mail communication you received from this vendor.

2021 Exhibitor Resources

Thank you for signing up as a sponsoring exhibitor for 2021. We are excited to be partnering with you on this exciting project! This section is filled with resources to help you as you plan for the show.

Who is Your Audience?

Put your products directly into the hands of the 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.

“Spending time at the 2019 Design Expo was exceptional, both connecting to old friends and relating to new product lines for our upcoming builds. The TxA trade show allows us to personally meet and shake hands with our new suppliers.”
