Reserve Your Exhibition Booth!

Don’t miss the opportunity to showcase your product or service to over 1,600 highly qualified distributors from across the country by exhibiting at NBWA's Product Demonstration Showcase!

This is a one-day exhibit event on Monday, October 10 from 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.. While the exhibit hall is smaller than the biennial Trade Show in Las Vegas, the same number of distributor attendees will be making the trip to Chicago. Making it a more intimate exhibit hall and, ultimately, giving you more exposure!

Exhibiting at the Product Demonstration Showcase is an exclusive opportunity for NBWA Members. If you are not currently a member, you may become a member or renew your status when you reserve your booth.
