Exhibit With Us

Innovation—new products, new technologies, new equipment—drives our industry.  

The Hotrod & Restoration Trade Show and The Restyling & Truck Accessories Trade Show are now "THE SHOP SHOW."

For the past 16 years, the Hotrod & Restoration Trade Show has been an important stop for shop owners and hot rod builders.  This last year, we added the Restyling & Truck Accessories Show to the event and the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. We came away from our Indy 2014 show with great feedback and new ideas to make your exhibiting experience even better.

Now, with a broader reach, expanded education program and larger exhibit hall, we are pleased to present a new name: THE SHOP SHOW.  Powered by two great magazines – Performance & Hotrod Business and Restyling & Truck Accessories – THE SHOP SHOW will stretch your existing opportunities and introduce you to new ones.

Why the change?  Almost universally, our readers and show attendees (your customers) refer to their place of business as “THE SHOP”.   We hope you agree that it’s simple, and it makes sense.

Set for March 13-14, 2015, in Indianapolis, you can expect a targeted audience—qualified buyers—to attend THE SHOP SHOW 2015.
