EDspaces Named One of 50 Fastest Growing Shows

Silver Spring, Md. — Trade Show Executive (TSE) magazine has named the Education Market Association’s EDspaces as one of the 50 Fastest-Growing Shows by total attendance from 2014 to 2015. EDspaces was also identified by TSE as a Fast Tracker (Top 100) for growth by net square feet of exhibit space. The 2015 show held in New Orleans, October 28-30, 2015, had record attendance among both architects and school purchasing officials and featured 152 exhibitors in 470 10’ x 10’ booth spaces.

“The Fastest 50 Class of 2015 once again includes a mix of established shows and up-and-coming events in nearly every industry sector, proving that face-to-face exhibitions are important assets to the business world,” said Darlene Gudea, President of Trade Show Executive Media Group.

EDspaces is the international tradeshow and conference that brings together all the key professionals who plan, design and manage innovative learning environments with the dealers, service providers and manufacturers who support them. EDspaces attendees include buyers from school districts, colleges & universities from across the country; dealers of all types; architects and interior designers. The American Institute of Architects Committee on Architecture for Education holds its annual Fall Conference at EDspaces.

“We are very excited to see the industry rally around EDspaces’ mission to bring together all of the key stakeholders that influence innovative learning environments.” said Jim McGarry, President & CEO of the Education Market Association.

A call for presentations for the 2016 EDspaces, November 2-4, 2016 in Cincinnati, Ohio, is currently underway. The EDspaces Planning Committee has chosen to coordinate the theme of the event with the AIA-CAE Conference: Visioning and Re-visioning. Sessions that explore the ways in which pedagogical innovation and cutting-edge design impact and influence each other will be balanced with others that focus on what environmental factors contribute to higher student achievement. Industry thought-leaders are encouraged to submit a proposal by the March 30 deadline.

The Education Market Association (EDmarket) provides events, opportunities, resources, and leadership that improve student outcomes by advancing the educational products marketplace. Visit for information on EDspaces, the conference and expo for innovative learning environments.
