Trade Show Coordinator

Alternate Titles: Convention Coordinator, Event Coordinator, Event Planner, Conference Coordinator


Trade Show Coordinators support Trade Show Managers in planning, organizing, and executing a trade show. Trade Show Coordinators provide assistance in researching and securing an appropriate venue, coordinating vendors and exhibitors, and work within a specified budget to achieve the goals of the event.

Trade Show Coordinators generally have a Bachelor’s Degree, though this is not always required. Trade Show Coordinators must be able to maintain strong relationships with colleagues, vendors, exhibitors, and attendees. They need to be detail-oriented and well-organized.
