Here’s what Tent Expo participants had to say…

The attendee experience

“Because of the treasure hunt, 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. The contest was a productive use of my time for many reasons … I was delighted to win and plan share the prize money with my team!”
— Grand Prize Winner Fredricka Schaeffer, Glawe Tent and Awning

“The contest helped me maximize my time at Tent Expo 2013. Visiting with every exhibitor allowed me to educate myself and uncover business opportunities I didn’t know existed!”
— Steve Baker, Baker Tent

“By attending Tent Expo and networking with fellow members of industry, I am assured we are following guidelines to make our industry a safer industry.”
— Bob Mutton, Bob Mutton Party & Tent Rental


The exhibitor experience

“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.”
— Alex Kouzmanoff, Aztec Tents

“I think having the stickers encouraged everyone to stop by the booths. We talked to so many more attendees compared to two years ago … it was amazing!”
— Tony Ware, Mainline Carpets

“Overall, the response this year’s event was very positive … the attendance was as good as it’s been it in many years and we were pleased to welcome several new faces. Tent exhibitors went all the way with excellent displays and the educational content was relevant to everyone in attendance. I think participants left feeling it was time and money well spent.”
— David A. MacArthur, Losberger US

“We very much appreciated the efforts made to get the participants around to all the exhibits and tents. There was a marked increase from prior years in the number of customer interactions.”
