Each have been recognized by Trade Show Executive (TSE) magazine for their annual markets as being either among the Top 50 fastest-growing shows in 2012 or one of the publication’s Executive Gold 100 honorees for Largest Shows of 2011 (the top shows for 2012 will not be announced until later this year). NTP’s Coverings and Hanley Wood’s Surfaces were among the Gold 100, while NWFA’s Wood Expo, along with Coverings, were named as finalists in the 2012 fastest-growing shows.
