TSNN has announced the list of the 2016 TSNN Top 250 Trade Shows in the United States, which is based on net square footage. It’s always interesting to see the list and where shows rank, particularly those who juggle some of the top spots from year to year.
This year, CES 2016 ranked in the top spot, with 2.47 million net square feet at a combination of venues around Las Vegas. Number two is the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), which covered 1.37 million net square feet at McCormick Place in Chicago.
What’s fun this year is to see how many of the Top 250 were featured in the historic trade show series I wrote last year, which is another testament to their long-running success. Here’s a list of the profiles of those honorees so you can read their backstories:
There’s an article with more details about the rankings on the TSNN website, plus a complete list of all 250 shows that’s searchable.
