2013 ICE USA already bigger than 2011 show, says organizer

Due to a combination of several new exhibitors coming into the show and many current exhibitors taking larger booth space, ICE USA 2013 has already surpassed the size of last year’s event. ICE USA will take place from April 9-11, 2013, at the Orange County Convention Ctr. in Orlando, Florida.

According to Bob Chiricosta, ICE USA show director, nearly 200 companies have already reserved slightly more space than the 2011 ICE USA show with almost a year to go before the event. “We are on track to have a significantly larger event next year,” Chiricosta predicted. “Since many companies don’t reserve their booths until a few months before the show, we anticipate adding dozens of additional exhibitors over the next 12 months.” He added that show organizer Mack Brooks Exhibitions recently increased the show floor by 15,000 sq ft to accommodate this anticipated demand for more space.

More than 30 companies are new to the 2013 show and 18 current exhibitors have increased the size of their booths, with some nearly doubling their space. Chiricosta said they are also adding some new features to the show in 2013. “We will soon be announcing some exciting new enhancements to the 2013 show that will benefit both attendees and exhibitors.”
