One of the country's premier independent trade show organizers

Corcoran opened its doors for business in 1990. Perhaps it would be more appropriate to say “door”, as at the time the company consisted of one person, Tom Corcoran, working out of the spare bedroom in his suburban home.  After serving as Convention Director for the National Restaurant Association for 12 years, Tom decided to go into business for himself and formed a trade show outsourcing firm aimed at growing events.

Today, Corcoran has a staff of more than 30 experienced trade show professionals who have produced more than 700 conventions in 100 cities. Not too shabby.

 

IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT DOING THE BEST JOB POSSIBLE.
IT’S ABOUT CREATING RELATIONSHIPS THAT LAST.

When our clients succeed, we succeed—and the key to success is a great working partnership.  The Corcoran philosophy is built on down to earth, personal connections that lead to long-term relationships.

Our approach has produced a history of outstanding client satisfaction, with average client tenure of 10 years.  Our first client, the National Beer Wholesalers Association trade show, has been one of our valued partners for all 25 years of our existence.

We are grateful to all of our clients who have partnered with us since 1990, and look forward to the next 25 years with a fresh face.

 

We are proud members of the following associations:
