‘The Renaissance Years for the Exhibition Industry’ — Trade Show Executive’s New Directory Will Examine Revitalization Efforts of Key Cities


Carlsbad, CA – Cities across the nation, from Anaheim to Houston and New Orleans to Washington, DC are in the midst of  ambitious revitalization plans  that will transform their infrastructures.  Some are adding and renovating hotels or expanding, upgrading or building new convention centers. Airports are being modernized;  new cultural and entertainment districts are emerging;   and many other civic improvements are on the drawing boards.

If you think you know a city inside and out, but it has been two or more years since you visited a potential new venue for your show,  take a second look. Redevelopment efforts are transforming cities large and small.

Trade Show Executive magazine will launch a new directory that will provide an in-depth look at “The Renaissance Years for the Trade Show Industry:  2006 to 2010 — How  Key Trade Show Cities are Rebuilding, Revitalizing and Transforming Their Infrastructures.” The directory is billed as a virtual fam trip that gives you a written and visual overview of the redevelopment efforts of the nation’s top trade show cities and also for the up-and-coming ones. It will consist of 4, 8 and 12-page advertorial inserts by cities who are launching major efforts to capture more of the lucrative exhibition, meetings and business travel markets. TSE’s Renaissance Directory  will provide key facts, figures, plans, renderings and photos of what is the grand vision and what is already underway.

The directory will premier November 2006.
