Access to Key Decision Makers

Gear Expo provides the best forum to network with new prospects while connecting with existing clients.

Promotion of Your Company

This must-attend event is heavily promoted through more than 3,000,000 impressions via the Internet, mailings, targeted e-mails, industry publications, news releases, digital messages, social media, and calls to our members and prospects. As an exhibitor, your company’s name will be included in many of the promotions to your client base.

Visibility via Widespread Advertising

Gear Expo is promoted all over the world in a variety of publications and media, and partners with a number of other organizations to bring the largest possible audience to your booth. These efforts include promotion at major industry trade shows, as well as advertising and editorials in industry publications such as Gear Technology, Gear Solutions, Manufacturing Engineering, Power Transmission Engineering, Diesel Progress, Gear Production, Today’s Motor Vehicles and more.

Show Floor Traffic Builders

Lunch breaks, receptions, on-floor education and other unique events are designed to keep attendees front and center inside the exhibition hall.

Expansion into a Broader Audience

A continued co-location with ASM Heat Treating Society’s Conference & Exposition attracts an even broader attendee base. The success of this co-location brings an additional 1,700 buyers to the show floor. The conference programming sponsored by AGMA, ASM and other allied associations also adds to the attendee base. And, we will continue to offer high-impact networking and programming to the core audience of gear buyers and manufacturers, including the end user segments.
