Eaton Hall, founded in 1984, has brought together thousands of buyers and sellers in live events. We created some of the largest trade shows in their categories, two of which have been acquired by other companies, including one led by an investor group from JPMorgan. For more than 25 years, we've been a company bringing the right buyers and sellers together for face-to-face exchange.
Eaton Hall found a new and different way to bring buyers and sellers together that combates shrinking trade show audiences and declining ROI for exhibitors. Our invitation-only format sheds all the excess costs for exhibitors of carpet, freight, and labor, and also allows for much more selling time with an audience of only the most qualified and interested buyers. Recently, our success with this new way of selling was profiled in several articles in the trade show press.
Founder Scott Goldman has received industry awards including The TSEA Focus Award, The Tradeshow Week Fastest 50, TS-2 Best of Show, and ASBPE National First Place Award. In April, 2012, Scott was included among EXPO Magazine's Expo Elite, the Top 20 Trailblazers of the events industry.
He has been a featured speaker at the Society of Independent Show Organizers and The Professional Conference Managers Association. He was also Founding Publisher of Exhibit Marketing Magazine. Scott started his first business, a printing company, with vendors he met at his first trade show, which he attended at the Nassau Coliseum at the age of 15. He's had a passion for face-to-face marketing ever since.
