Trade shows, meetings, conventions and exhibitions were hit very hard during the extended COVID-19 pandemic.

In fact, inexplicably, the industry was completely left out of the generous relief packages that were readily made available to many other industries.

This makes the fast approaching “Together Again” Expo and Job Fair at the Atlantic City Convention Center all the more important.


The event will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, August 4-5, 2021.

We had a great on-air discussion with Laura Palker, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Trade Show Solutions Center.

The interview took place on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 from 8:45 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., ET.

You can listen to the wide-ranging interview on demand on our “Hurley in the Morning” WPG Talk Radio 95.5 podcast, accessible from your smartphone on the WPG Talk Radio app.

The National Trade Show Alliance was founded in response to the challenges of individuals in the tradeshow community. The community members are those whose livelihood comes from the work created by in person events such as tradeshows, conferences and exhibitions.

The live events industry, which includes trade shows, is an expansive one that creates millions of jobs, generates billions of dollars in spending and adds more than $1 trillion in gross production to the United States economy.

Palker is highly respected in the industry and she specializes in sales, marketing and branding.

Like many industries, the COVID-19 pandemic forced The tradeshows industry to reinvent itself; to further embrace virtual technology and ramp things up as best they could, in order to get a running start as soon as the American economy opened-up, again.

This is a significant piece of business, expertly cultivated by MEET AC.

Palker is representing the National Trade Show Alliance as a co-founder of this organization, which is serving to shine the spotlight on the trade shows, conferences and exhibitions industry.

Industry professionals should consider clearing your calendar for this special event.
