Trade Show Executive Names NFMT as One of the Nation’s 50 Fastest Growing Trade Shows
MILWAUKEE, WI — The National Facilities Management and Technology Conference and Expo (NFMT) today announced that it has been named one of the 50 fastest growing trade shows by Trade Show Executive magazine. NFMT ranked in the top 50 by growth in net square feet of exhibit space and growth in number of exhibiting companies. Winners were selected based on the highest percentage of growth in each of their respective categories.
“We are honored to be included in Trade Show Executive's Fastest 50 - Class of 2012,” said Bob Wisniewski, president and owner of Trade Press Media Group, which co-owns the event with ROC Exhibitions in Lisle Ill. “I’m extremely proud of our show management team and grateful for the support of our loyal attendees, speakers and exhibitors. NFMT is next week and this exciting announcement gives our team an extra boost as we’re in the throes of making final arrangements for this year while planning for the 2014 show.”
NFMT is the nation’s top trade show, educational conference and networking event for facilities management professionals. Attendance is free or industry professionals. Each year, the event draws thousands of building owners, directors of facilities and maintenance and engineering mangers who are responsible for commercial, educational, government, medical, retail, industrial/manufacturing, hospitality and utility facilities and properties. NFMT 2013 is scheduled for March 12-14 at the Baltimore Convention Center. An attendance of more than 5,000 professionals and 500 exhibitors are expected to comprise the show.
According to the Trade Show Executive, “An elite group of shows vaulted over some 4,000 other trade shows in the U.S. by growing at least seven times the average growth rate of 2012. The 50 top performers in each of three metrics — net square feet, number of exhibiting companies and attendance — have now been identified and will be honored for their elite status at the Trade Show Executive Fastest 50 Awards & Summit, May 8-10, 2013 at the Swissôtel Chicago.”
Owned jointly by ROC Exhibitions and Trade Press Media Group, NFMT is the industry's biggest trade show dedicated to professionals who are responsible for the management, operations, design and construction of commercial and institutional buildings. Drawing thousands of facility professionals each year, attendees benefit from more than 120 free top-notch educational sessions, valuable networking and an expansive exhibit hall showcasing the industry's top product offerings.
