Oceanside, CATrade Show Executive (TSE) has been selected as the exclusive media partner of the Large Show Roundtable, which for nine years has gathered the leaders of the largest shows in the nation. The invitation-only forum is held three times per year and has drawn the organizers of shows ranging from 125,000 net square feet of exhibit space to 2.2 million.

The agreement begins with the July 15 event at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The 2011 schedule includes January 27 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas; April 14 in Chicago; and August 11 in Boston.

Organized by Sam Lippman, president of Integrated Show Management & Marketing since 2001, the Large Show Roundtable is a closed-door session limited to 16 organizers. Featuring a facilitated discussion by Sam Lippman, the event results in a frank and open dialogue on the pressing issues faced by large-scale events.

Topics of recent Large Show Roundtables have included strategies for co-locations, social media, building international attendance and working with partner companies and competitors. As part of future agendas, TSE will speak on industry trends and insights.

Lippman said, “Partnering with Darlene Gudea and her experienced and creative team at Trade Show Executive is great news for the attendees, sponsors and host cities of future Large Show Roundtables because of the significant benefits they will provide. I am personally looking forward to working with them to continually improve each Large Show Roundtable.”

Organizer Sam Lippman also produces the Exhibition and Convention Executives Forum (ECEF) which draws nearly 200 independent and association show organizers each June for a one-day conference and networking. During his career, Lippman has managed mega-shows such as the International Consumer Electronics Show, PRINT and GRAPH Expo.
