Trade show companies Reed Exhibitions and George Little Management, LLC (GLM) announced that they have forged a cooperative agreement through which they will co-locate two of their events in Las Vegas, NV, U.S., beginning in May 2005.
Together, GLM's Gourmet Products Show and Reed Exhibition's National Hardware Show are expected to present some 3,000 exhibitors of gourmet housewares and home improvement products, in a combined total of 650,000 net square feet of exhibit space.
Running May 17-19, 2005, at the Las Vegas Convention Center and Sands Expo and Convention Center, in Las Vegas, the companies said the two events will attract more than 45,000 national and international buyers.
"This cooperative agreement between Reed and GLM creates an unprecedented relationship between two of the world's leading tradeshow management companies for the benefit of their individual constituencies," said Chet Burchett, president of Reed Exhibitions, N.A.
George F. Little, president of GLM, added, "Since 1993, GLM has proactively sought synergistic industry partnerships as a way of expanding our market reach. We believe that this cooperation with Reed will create an enormous expansion of business opportunities for buyers and suppliers in both markets."
