Whether you’re facing an overextended staff, shrinking budgets or exhibit space and sponsorship reductions, outsourcing to Corcoran can help you reinvigorate your expo.

We have produced over 700 successful trade shows for our clients in industries ranging from beer to brain surgery. We know it takes hours of prospecting for potential exhibitors and even more time managing the needs of the current exhibitor base. It’s not easy. It’s hard work –it’s what we do everyday for our clients.

No matter the size or industry, we can develop a sales program that works for you. 

Corcoran consistently sells out our trade show and helps us find ways to increase booth space and the number of exhibitors. With the years of experience represented, there isn’t a better team of people to go to when we need help in the conventions and meeting business

OUR Proven Sales Results

Case Study: Healthcare Association, mid-sized expo



Healthcare Association turned to Corcoran due to a continuous decline in exhibit numbers.


Attended competing events throughout the year, conducted online research for new prospects based on product/region and identified new product categories to build the prospect database.


Experienced 14-15% increase in new companies and number of booths sold for 2 years running. Added over 100 new companies to the expo within 2 years.

Pre-show, the Corcoran team was prompt, flexible and personable. I felt recognized as an individual, important and well taken care of. Onsite, the [Show Manager] continued the fantastic service provided from the start. One of the best Show Managers I’ve worked with in my 7 years of exhibiting at scientific conferences.
