Charleston/September Show Exhibit Waiting List Update
The September show has had a fairly long waiting list for exhibit space for the past few years. There is some good news for those who have been on this list for a while:
- The new February show in Ft. Worth, TX did allow the opportunity for many September waiting list companies to exhibit there. The relative success of last month's event has led some of these companies to use that show as their one exhibiting forum for 2019.
- We have been working through the waiting list now to fill the last few Lobby Tabletop spaces for the September show - and ended up reducing the list by about 50 companies to fill 20 open spots.
- The flip side of a successful show in Texas is that about 30 new companies have requested to be added to the Charleston waiting list since the beginning of this year (i.e., word-of-mouth from the Texas event has brought more demand to the Charleston event).
Excess demand is a "somewhat good" problem to have, but we will continue to evaluate the Chemicals America show venues to ensure that our events continue to serve the business networking needs of the chemical industry as best possible.
