  • Exhibit sales

Planning & consulting

A smooth show requires months of preparation. It requires relationships with vendors and GSCs across the country. Perhaps most of all, it requires the sophistication and experience necessary to pull all this information together for vastly different markets to create an actionable plan that is flexible enough to accommodate a wide variety of possibilities. At NMNA, we check all the boxes.

Relationship management

We provide high-quality customer service to your exhibitors each and every time out. Successful long-term growth strategies rely on that: strong relationships with current exhibitors. That’s why we’re there from early registration through the show’s end, building and nurturing those relationships with one voice, one point of contact, and one unified vision that makes their experience the top priority. Nothing fuels your event’s growth more effectively than the positive word of mouth this strategy generates.

On-site management

There’s nothing more energizing or exciting than experiencing your show once it’s up and running. The last thing you want to do is deal with any last-minute issues. That’s why we make sure to maintain a presence on the exhibit floor from load-in to load-out that’s both proactive and problem solving: so you can spend that time enjoying your event.

Post-event analysis

It’s important to acknowledge what went right and what can be improved after the event. That’s how you grow bigger and better every time out. Our exhibitor and attendee surveys, fiscal wrap-up, and professional observations deliver a 360-degree view so you can assess the performance of every facet of your event.


Our vision is to transform the ordinary, to create and manage exhibitions and events that generate possibilities and deliver unforgettable experiences. If you can do that for your current members, you’ll drive new membership.

Provide meaningful experiences

From special packages to added benefits, we offer a wide range of options to help deliver an unforgettable, impactful experience for your members. Providing your membership with perks like this are the hallmark of great organizations like yours.

Expanded networking

Exchange ideas with fellow members. Meet with your industry’s most influential executives. Leverage our global network that puts your membership face-to-face with the world’s top decision-makers. These are the opportunities NMNA packs into every exhibition.

Driving membership forward

A strong showing with motivated and energized membership helps you maximize your visibility to attract non-member businesses. Effectively managing the needs and requirements of these two groups allows you to grow bigger, stronger, and more vibrant.

Sales & Sales Management Services

NMNA provides comprehensive sales services associated with your event, including exhibit, sponsorship, advertising and directly or indirectly associated miscellaneous opportunities.

Bring in market leaders

The old adage you’re only as good as the company you keep is one to remember when selling space to exhibitors. Getting the right ones to sign up leads to a roll call of others following suit. Our experienced staff’s use of our exhibit sales database, contact network, online resource and industry publication assets has identifying and signing these exhibitors down to a science.

Interactive marketing

We know digital marketing. Our successful email campaigns reach potential exhibitors and attendees with impactful frequency and messaging. The data gathered then allows us to target companies that have opened and clicked-through the message. We’re also available through Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook, creating multiple avenues to reach sales targets.

On-site exhibit sales

The best time to take advantage of your event’s energy is while it’s happening. That’s why our strong renewal program works so well. In fact, it sets the pace for the year. We have developed a variety of renewal programs designed for a wide range of client needs and budgets.
