Exhibitor Information

Hickory Shows produces a number of shows throughout the year. Currently, all shows are held at the Hickory Metro Convention Center in Hickory, North Carolina.

Why Exhibit With Us

Each show we produce is unique in focus. It is our goal to create the best experience possible for attendees while also doing our absolute best to help each exhibitor have a successful show.

Each of our shows is juried. In the context of our shows, each show has a set of core values and a brand identity. With that in mind, an exhibitor may be a perfect fit for one show, but not another.

Who We Are

We are the brother-sister team of Jimmy Schiltz and Kate Dillon. We are each small business owners with vast experience attending, exhibiting, and promoting trade shows. We are residents of the Hickory region and want to do our part to contribute to the community.

We strongly believe in the power of trade shows and events.

We are members of the Catawba Valley Chamber of Commerce as well as the Home Builders Association of Hickory-Catawba Valley.

What Sets Us Apart

We embrace technology and it's capabilities. The floor plan for each show is interactive online. Exhibitors have full control of adding information to their booth listing and attendees are able to connect instantly.

Through our project management software and the use of our continuously growing email list, we are able to capture data, conduct surveys, and engage with our audience. This data is invaluable as we design and develop each show.

No matter the industry, the data overwhelmingly supports the fact that businesses that exhibit at trade shows are the leaders in their field, and that the ones who do not are looking up to those that do.
