July and August trade shows

July and August trade shows in the U.S.

Health, beauty and apparel expos, along with trade shows targeting the construction and home improvement industry, highlight the list of upcoming events for July and August. If you sell products or services catered to those industries and are considering exhibiting at a show this summer, you may benefit from exposing your company to potential new clients, and from the opportunity to evaluate your competitors, survey the market and get new ideas for your business.

If you’re planning on exhibiting this summer but need help deciding which shows to attend, this list can help identify some to fit your market. If you need help transporting your booth materials, contact ArcBest to learn about our trade show shipping services.
