A More Robust Trade Show Experience

Being the only event that hosts athletics, fitness, recreation and military facility/program managers all on one show floor, you have access to a wide range of prospects, many with large purchasing budgets.

Plus, our show floor features a variety of pavilions and events designed to keep attendees in the expo hall and attract new athletics, fitness and recreation decision-makers:

Demo Stage

This area is designed to let attendees catch the latest fitness trends right on the show floor. This is the spot for classes and demos that are sure to jump-start fresh ideas for their facility and programs.

USAPA Pickleball Court

Attendees (and exhibitors) can watch a demo, play a game and cheer on their peers to see why Pickleball is America's hottest game and how it can benefit their programs and facilities.

AORE Pavilion

AB Show welcomes the Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education at the 2023 event! AORE connects people to the outdoors through recreation and education experiences.

MFA Pavilion

AB Show is proud to have the Medical Fitness Association (MFA) co-locate at our event for another year! It focuses on medically-integrated health and fitness.

Free-Throw Court

Attendees can stop by and test out their free-throw abilities. For $1, you’ll have 45 seconds to shoot and score. The more baskets they make, the greater their chances of winning a terrific prize.

NAYS Pavilion

AB Show is proud to have the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) co-locate at our event for another year! It focuses on important topics affecting youth sports.
