Our trade show provides a prime, once-a-year opportunity to generate leads, nurture prospects, build brand awareness, expand distribution, conduct training, and enhance relationships with existing customers. ASLRRA 2020 Connections Expo will offer the top products and services available to our industry, and the Expo Hall will be the location for our Sunday and Monday receptions, as well as breakfast and lunch on Monday. Highlights of this year’s Expo Hall activities include a Silent Auction to benefit ASLRRA’s Education Fund and a spotlight on new exhibitors. Cash prize drawings and other plans will add even more energy and excitement to the Expo experience.

Expo doors will open on Sunday at 2:00 pm and close at 7:00 pm, reopening Monday for breakfast, lunch, morning/afternoon refreshment breaks and closing reception. That gives our attendees dedicated time to visit 240 booths, where companies display their goods and services in our hall. Don't miss your opportunity to visit the only expo in America geared to the short line and regional railroad industry.

A standard single, in-line booth costs $2,350 (a premium booth costs $200 more) and each booth purchased includes one complimentary exhibitor registration. Additional exhibitor badges must be purchased and all attendees must be badged to enter the Expo.

To purchase a booth, please contact Kathy Keeney at kkeeney@aslrra.org. Booths are only available to ASLRRA member companies and 2020 membership dues must be paid by March 13 in order to exhibit. If you'd like information on membership, please reach out to Kathy at (202) 585-3439.

Special Note to our Railroad Members: Please plan to visit with our excellent vendors in the Expo Hall. Watch for the email with information about the mobile app which will enhance your meeting experience and allow you to plan your expo hall schedule in advance of the event.
