Trade Shows in Orlando

The Orlando area’s sunny weather and easy accessibility from around the country make it the ideal place to hold a trade show. Tourism is the region's major industry and as a result, extensive infrastructure is in place for hosting events and out-of-town business visitors. Add to that a range of area attractions — the city is known as the “Theme Park Capital of the World,” after all — and it’s easy to see why so many industries hold major trade shows in Orlando.

Below we’ve listed all upcoming Orlando trade shows for the next year — check back often or sign up for our mailing list for the latest updates. Planning an event that isn’t listed here? Contact our office to have it put on the calendar.

Getting to Orlando

The Orlando International Airport, a hub for Southwest, JetBlue and Frontier Airlines, serves travelers to the region. The nearby Orlando Sanford International Airport also hosts domestic flights from Allegiant Air as well as a few international routes and seasonal charters.

Orlando is located on Interstate 4, the state’s major throughway. It is approximately a three and half hour drive north from Miami, and a two-hour drive south from Jacksonville. Orlando is also served by Amtrak and is a major stop on the Sliver Star and Silver Meteor lines, which run from Miami to New York via the Northeast Corridor.

Planning Your Event

A trade show is a significant opportunity for your business. At APG Exhibits, we recommend planning well in advance to make the most of it. Some things you’ll want to establish early on include:

  • Your objectives and goals for the event
  • Your marketing budget
  • The size of your exhibit space
  • Your sales message/marketing materials
  • Any events or giveaways you want to host
  • Which team members will attend

Organizations that are successful at trade shows start the planning process early. With a clear vision for the event and appropriate resources, your business will have a better chance of capitalizing on the opportunities for growth and partnerships that present themselves.

Understanding the Importance of a Great Display

One of the best things about trade shows is that they effectively level the playing field between newer and more established businesses. A small investment in a great display can help your organization stand out from the crowd, attracting attention away from your competitors and giving you the opportunity to make a compelling pitch to potential stakeholders.

At APG Exhibits, we understand the importance of an effective trade show display. We sell a carefully curated selection of products by some of today’s best manufacturers, at a guaranteed low price. We offer in-house printing that vividly captures your logo and branding, as well as low-cost design services.
