This question, has in recent times been coming
up a lot, thus we have decided to provide a succinct explanation in order to
make clear the differences between a conference
and a trade show.
show is an exhibition for companies in a specific market to showcase and demonstrate
their latest offerings. Most of the times, trade
shows are open to the public, but gather mainly interest from market
participants, namely people and businesses active in the specific market.
Conferences, on the other hand, are meetings of
many people, generally to discuss about ideas or problems related to a
particular topic. Often they are focused on ideas or developments related to a particular topic.
At times,trade shows and conferences can
happen simultaneously and are combined under the same exhibition floor.
