What Our Members Say

“…I was able to talk with every exhibitor and evaluate options for our team. As a result, we made some substantial purchases and important new connections…”
— Grand Prize Winner Fredricka Schaefer, Glawe Tent and Awning

“The Tent Expo is the only venue in North America that brings manufacturers and tent renters together from such a wide international group … It is always a highlight of our year. As a manufacturer we are able to try new ideas, display new concepts and listen to the needs of the industry.”
