The NRA Show was lauded as a Gold 100 in the U.S. at Trade Show Executive (TSE) magazine's recent Gold 100 Awards & Summit in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.
Each year TSE recognizes the top 100 trade shows in the United States not only on net square feet of exhibit space but also on technological innovations, green initiatives, global participation (fact: 107 countries were represented at NRA Show 2009) and brand leadership.
"By honoring the [top 100] shows that set the Gold Standard for the industry, we are not only recognizing those events that have thrived during the severe economic downturn, but are also putting a spotlight on the new ideas and strategies that others can follow," said Darlene Gudea, president, Trade Show Executive Media Group.
