Booths 70% sold out for the Spring Expo trade show

Booths are selling fast for the Spring Expo in Drumheller, but if you act fast you can still get space at Drumheller's only annual trade show. 

When: April 21-23 at the Greentree Mall. 92 booths in both 8x8 and 10x10 layouts. Larger booths available upon request. 

Why book a booth? Trade shows are a great way to reach potential customers and clients, and to gain exposure for your products or services to thousands. Many people want to shop local but aren't aware of the businesses we have in the valley and what they offer. Help them find YOUR business!
