Join Us As An Exhibitor

Marketplace Events creates vibrant expositions connecting enthusiasts with experts, products and services in dynamic face-to-face environments.  The company produces 76 shows in 34 markets including 51 consumer home shows in the US, 16 in Canada, six holiday shows, two bridal shows and one spring boutique. The 76 combined events attract 22,000 exhibitors, 1.9 million attendees and another 3.9 million unique web visitors annually. From 15 offices, the 170-person staff produces some of the most successful and longest-running shows in North America, including market-leading shows in Minneapolis, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal—some of which have thrived in their markets for more than 75 years.


While we realize that current restrictions in many U.S. states and Canadian provinces where we operate prevent the production of large indoor events, we are moving forward under the assumption that much can change over the months ahead.  If restrictions do not change and we are unable to produce an event in 2021 due to COVID, exhibitors and partners will be notified.

We appreciate the loyalty and patience of all of our customers during this unprecedented and difficult time.  While the event industry has undoubtedly been impacted, Marketplace Events looks forward to operating events as soon as it is safe to do so, and well into the future.
