Marketplace Appointments

The Sports ETA Sports Marketplace is the longest-running reverse trade show in the sports events and tourism industry. Destinations, vendors, and event owners participate in appointments to cultivate meaningful relationships and produce measurable ROI. Educational opportunities and other activities are not scheduled during Marketplace hours, so exhibitors have the undivided attention of attendees. Membership is required to participate in appointments.

What is a reverse tradeshow?

A typical reverse tradeshow is where attendees engage with the exhibitors through pre-scheduled meeting appointments. The advantage of a reverse tradeshow is that exhibitors are guaranteed booth traffic during pre-scheduled appointment times rather than simply hoping attendees stop by during open exhibit hours.
