By working with a tradeshow venue that knows the ropes, you’ll be able to minimize headaches and maximize the effectiveness of your event. Learn more, below.

What to Look For in a Tradeshow Venue


The best way to choose the right tradeshow venue is by asking the right questions. These are the concerns you should keep in mind:

Are you experienced with hosting tradeshows?

Tradeshow logistics are complicated. There are many details that must be attended to and it can be easy to let things fall through the cracks. By working with a venue that has significant tradeshow experience, you can rest assured that they will understand the needs of your event and proactively help you to ensure its success.

What amenities do you offer?

A tradeshow venue that is experienced will go above and beyond in helping ensure the success of your event. A good venue will offer a wide variety of amenities that will help the day run more smoothly. At Martin’s Caterers, for example, we can provide AV equipment, pipe and drape service, arrange transportation for your guests, and offer a wide variety of other benefits.

What is the parking situation like?

Parking may be far from your mind, but when hosting a large event it is an important concern. You don’t want vendors and clients to struggle to find parking so an onsite garage or lot is a huge benefit. If the parking is free, like at each of Martin’s 7 locations, that’s even better!
