The NOCOM show must go on! The manufacturers are tough and so are we here at NoCo. Your safety is important to us therefore we will have booth move in available earlier at 11am with an effort to close before 4pm to beat the storm. If your schedule doesn’t accommodate that, we welcome you to move in at 8am on Thursday. The show will start promptly at 9am however we understand that road conditions may delay exhibitor arrivals. See you at NOCOM 2019, we can’t wait!

NOCOM, the largest manufacturing trade show in Colorado, is back for the 5th year! Manufacturers and our supply-chain partners are invited to showcase your innovative products and services, network and grow their business relationships, while we show the community how manufacturing continues to be a strong contributor to the local economy. The show continues to grow, with 25% increase in exhibitor and attendee numbers in 2018, and over 70% of exhibitors having gained business from the show.

In 2019 we expect over 130 booths and over 900 attendees from Colorado and beyond — increasing your opportunity! Our theme is “Connecting Supply Chain” which is the heart of the NOCO partnership and continues to be a game-changer for the industry. With a bigger B2B reception that last year following the show, a speaker hall with manufacturer-chosen educational sessions throughout the day, and a rock-bottom price for a show of this impact, we encourage you to purchase your booths quickly!

Success of NOCOM 2018

Thank you to all that made NOCOM 2018 the largest NOCOM trade show that the partnership ever hosted with over 20% participation increase from the previous year! Over 900 attendees and over 127 exhibitor booths were filled and participated in the event on Thursday, April 12th, 2018. Booth sales increased by 24% and total revenue increased by 30% from previous years. High School and college students from Northern Colorado also visited the show getting the chance to interact with our exhibitors and expand their understanding of the industry. The resounding feedback received from participants were the steady foot traffic throughout the day and valuable networking opportunities with suppliers. The B2B Networking Reception had an overwhelming turn out, maximizing our headcount for the space! The reception is a must attend event, so purchase your tickets as there is limited availability!
