The Expo Group team is humbled by the trust our clients have shown us, and we join in their optimism for face-to-face trade shows.”
To support the return of trade shows and events, The Expo Group has released tactical health and safety protocols as well as strategic creative resources for professionals grappling with the impact of COVID-19.
