A trade show is an exhibition for members of a particular trade, industry, or profession to showcase their offerings. It is a place to gather, network, display, and discuss the latest and most innovative products and services. Engaging in personal connections at a trade show helps build new business relationships. Some trade shows permit only industry members to attend. However, other shows are open to the public, providing an opportunity to expand a company’s reach to new clientele. Examples of popular trade shows are for technology, manufacturing, healthcare, restaurants, and food industries.
Choosing a Venue is the Most Important Aspect of Planning
The Canterbury Conference Center has an abundance of space for indoor and outdoor exhibition booths and displays for vendors, including areas for guest speakers to educate, entertain, and engage attendees. With multiple rooms of various sizes and flexible space, we can accommodate each event element, such as separate places for breakout sessions or workshops. We have state-of-the-art technology and amenities to meet your requirements.
An Essential Part of the Event is Food
Snacks, appetizers, and drinks are welcomed by attendees moving around the exhibits. However, having a more traditional breakfast, luncheon, or dinner after the event reflects nicely on your organization. At the Canterbury Conference Center, we provide various food choices and dishes that suit different dietary restrictions. Our on-site culinary team can craft the perfect menu to complement the event, whether you prefer a simple or an upscale menu.
After the event, there is no need to leave. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of our country setting, with guest rooms that have all the offerings of home during your stay. For your enjoyment, we have hiking trails and offer canoeing or kayaking on beautiful Lake Gem. Experience the quiet of nature, or venture out to the many tourist opportunities in Central Florida.
