Tabletop Exhibit & Reception

This much-anticipated event offers suppliers an invaluable opportunity to display their innovations to the industry's top decision-makers and helps renderers stay abreast of developments in the field. Unlike large trade shows that span over days, this focused event places all emphasis on the exhibitors.
