The WTCC features trade show venues that contain 50,000 square feet (sf) of prime exhibit space or more, and each listing includes details such as notable venue features and management contact information. 

Among the trade show venues added to the 2023 WTCC is The World Equestrian Center in Ocala, Fla. The venue is most frequently used for equestrian events, however it has the capability to host trade shows as well with 264,600 sf of prime exhibit space and 438,360 sf of flex space.

Resorts World Las Vegas is another new addition to the directory. This all-in-one complex opened in June 2021 at the site that was previously the Stardust Resort and Casino.
