Southwest's Premier Marketplace
Craig and Margaret Parker started Parker Trade shows 30 years ago, and from humble beginnings the popular Southwest premier Marketplace was created. Prior to Founding PTS the Parkers were exhibitors themselves, having exhibited in hundreds of shows across the country. With this experience a vision was inspired to create trust and establish a relationship with each exhibitor. The relationship will make them feel like they are coming home… with an atmosphere of peace and a sense of family.
For our Buyers
Jewelry has always been a mainstay in the fashion world and buying jewelry or any other of the many products offered at our show is always an exhilarating experience. Prior to founding Parker Trade Shows, Craig & Margaret operated in both the retail & wholesale industries. Our extensive knowledge of these industries gives us a unique perspective into the needs of both the retail buyer and exhibitor. We are continually striving to be the best show possible by bringing you the newest and latest trends at the lowest wholesale prices. The way we do that is to be “out in the market” constantly looking for new wholesalers, manufacturers and importers with the best jewelry, gift and fashion accessory lines. Our goal is to help both buyers and exhibitors prosper.
For our Exhibitors
Parker Trade Shows offer exhibitors a great money making opportunity. Our 7,000 to 9,000 buyers per show, along with our creative, cutting edge advertising to over 100,000 prospect buyers in the region, allows you to get “face-to face” with the high caliber retail buyers who have been to our shows for 30 years---customers you might never know or be able to meet. Our Heavily attended boutique style Cash & Carry show with over 7,000 buyers offer the perfect mix for you. We know (having been exhibitors ourselves) how hard exhibiting can be, and we understand that time & business are important when choosing a trade show. That’s why so many choose to add us to their schedules. We offer that pleasant experience along with our loyal customer base and only 275 vendors gives you a high buyer-to-exhibitor ratio! You have branded Parker Trade Shows as the show of choice, and we are proud to say a lot of our exhibitors have been with us for 30 years; simply said we have stood the test of time.
