NGA Show Among Trade Show Executive’s Fastest 50

2024 NGA Show

The NGA Show has been selected as a member of the Fastest 50 Class of 2023, which recognizes rapidly growing trade shows that took place in the U.S. last year, by trade show industry journal Trade Show Executive.

The Fastest 50 are ranked in three categories: net square feet, exhibiting companies and total attendance.

“This is a great honor, and we are continuing the momentum since our 2023 show, which exceeded pre-pandemic numbers for attendance and exhibitors,” said Greg Ferrara, president and CEO of the National Grocers Association (NGA), which presents the show with Clarion Events. 

“We just closed the 2024 NGA Show, which set new records for attendee numbers and a sold-out expo hall. We thank all the retailers, wholesalers and suppliers whose generous support of our event contributed to this honor.”

Jamie Reesby, VP of generation and grocery at Clarion Events, echoed Ferrara’s sentiments. 

“The NGA Show continues to exceed our expectations for growth, driven by our loyal attendees and exhibitors. We appreciate being ranked by TSE among some of the finest trade shows in the country,” Reesby said.

Other Fastest 50 honorees include Data Center World, ProMat, RE+, FABTECH, International Roofing Expo, MAGIC Nashville, h+h americas, Live Design International, Motion + Power Technology Expo, ISC West, Manifest and CES. 

The 2023 class represents more than 15 million net square feet of paid exhibit space, 48,517 exhibiting companies and more than 1.4 million attendees.

Fastest 50 honorees are invited to TSE’s Fastest 50 Awards & Summit, set for May 8-10 at Resorts World Las Vegas. The annual gathering offers fresh educational content from the trade show industry’s thought leaders and various networking opportunities. 

In addition, the grand award winners – those shows that experienced the highest growth rates from 2022-23 – will be revealed.
