The 2023 Trade Show will be held at the Albatross Hotel, Gander.
An important component of Hospitality NL’s Annual Conference and Trade Show, it is the premier tourism trade show in Newfoundland and Labrador where suppliers can capture the attention of such a diverse group of tourism stakeholders.
Booth allocation will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. As a limited number of booths are available, your booth will only be confirmed as sold once your payment is received. Scheduled networking breaks held in conjunction with trade show hours ensure good traffic flow and business/networking opportunities.
