Emerald Expositions

Design & Construction

Our seven trade shows in the Design & Construction sector serve interior designers, architects, owners/operators, developers, specifiers and purchasers who work within a wide range of industries including hotels, resorts, restaurants, bars, spas, retail stores and healthcare facilities. The Design & Construction sector is particularly well-suited to trade shows due to the emphasis on visual and tactile processes which require significant in-person interaction. By aggregating a wide range of products under one roof, our trade shows allow designers and attendees to quickly survey a broad industry landscape versus the more traditional path of visiting hundreds of independent showrooms located in different cities. As a result, our shows provide significant value by enabling industry participants to keep up-to-date with changing trends and product styles. Our shows also provide a forum for participants to discuss and gain exposure to upcoming remodeling, renovation and new-build construction projects, which can support future business pipelines for both attendees and exhibitors.
