Going to a trade show can be expensive. Imagine paying to go to 8 to 10 shows per year.


Going to a trade show can be expensive. Imagine paying to go to 6 shows per year.

With WEDA’s Show Connect program, your community can be represented at 4 to 6 trade shows each year.

The trade shows for 2019 included:

Industrial Pack – Atlanta, Georgia
PROMAT – Chicago, Illinois
Advanced Design & Manufacturing- New York, New York
Intermodal Expo- Long Beach, California
FABTECH – Chicago, Illinois
MODEX – Atlanta, GA


WEDA will bring your literature to every show and represent your community to everyone at the show.

But WEDA does much more than that.

As a Show Connect member, you can attend any show that WEDA is exhibiting.

You can receive exclusive access to WEDA’s contacts – every person that we meet at every show can be added to your list of contacts. Each contact is a potential project, now or in the future.

Access to the Trade Show Report for every show, describing the events at the show, as well as our impressions of the industry.

Invitations to Appreciation Night, an event that is held in each city to thank our members. WEDA will always invite our local contacts, site locators, CEOs, etc., to these nights to meet you.

In short, for less than the cost of a single show, WEDA will give you all of the benefits of over 6 shows per year.

Is this for you?

If you’re a community that needs to be represented but has little or no trade show budget, our Show Connect Program is perfect for you. Not only will the Show Connect Program save you money, but it will get your community the recognition it deserves.  At an average cost of $12,500 per trade show, you can see how the savings add up. Additionally, you are not tied to the booth; you are working the show rather than being stuck at the booth. Imagine not having to deal with labor unions or the hassle of setting up the booth. Say goodbye to staying extra days to set up and tear down the booth or sending extra personnel so you can walk the floor. By choosing our Show Connect Program, you also save money by not having to ship, order, or maintain your booth.

Don’t have the budget or time to travel to the shows? Don’t worry… We’ve got you covered. You’ll get the full trade show experience through our trade show report from all shows selected. These reports provide you all the details you need to follow up and start quoting the projects we identified.
