The Association of Consumer and Trade Show Professionals was born from the idea that no one group existed to pull together and benefit the hundreds of thousands of people working in the expo industry on the front lines. For those with many years of experience to the novice exhibitor, the common bond is the hard work in planning, executing and making a show a success!
The ACTSP serves the membership by providing news updates about the world around us and what impacts our business. Whether it be legislation, trends in security, financial trends or travel issues, the member's access web site will report and inform.
The Show Schedule on the site is another tool to aid members in searching out new or different avenues of business. Search by date, location or type of show and see what new opportunities are out there!
Professional development and networking with other members of our community will help achieve personal and career goals through events, classes and conferences.
The philanthropic efforts are a cornerstone of the ACTSP and serve the purpose of reaching out in the communities in which we live and work. Food collections, blood drives and "fun-run"type activities highlight some of the opportunities we can come together as a group to do good.
The ACTSP is based in South Hadley, MA and operates in the US and Canada.
