Collaborate Marketplace




Next year, Collaborate Marketplace will be heading to Orlando, June 11-13, 2015, at Rosen Shingle Creek. Registration is now open.

Collaborate Marketplace, an annual education conference and appointment-only trade show, is a highly respected event that brings together the most active planners, suppliers and experts in corporate meetings and events for three days of general sessions, boot camps, roundtables, workshops, pre-set appointments and networking. The appointment-only trade show is the business marketplace, where RFPs are placed, dates are secured and relationships are developed for future business. The focus on education at Collaborate Marketplace allows you to brush up on your skills, learn about trending topics, get great business advice from speakers, and enjoy networking other industry professionals.
