The Ocean City Spring Trade Expo

MARCH 8 & 9, 2020  

The Ocean City Spring Trade Expo brings together the hospitality industry buyers and sellers to facilitate business. Produced by the non-profit Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association, this popular Expo draws close to 5,000 attendees and features 406 exhibit booths. Year after year, both exhibitors and attendees look forward to coming out of winter hibernation and gathering to network, solidify relationships, and learn from one another. In addition to finding the most innovative products on the market, attendees can see actual production demonstrations and learn the latest trends. As an added bonus, free educational sessions and culinary demonstrations take place throughout the Expo. In order to attend the Expo and walk the exhibit floor, you must be 21 years old and be a buyer, or a guest of a buyer, in the hospitality industry. Make plans to join us at the Ocean City Convention Center for the 46th Annual Spring Trade Expo!


Several unauthorized companies are randomly emailing our exhibitors claiming to have an Attendee database; claiming to have the Expo attendee list. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM! We would NEVER sell our lists and we do not charge you for it either!The Attendee list is provided to exhibitors FREE of charge after the Expo and you complete a survey from us. Simply delete any emails not coming from the official source.

Companies that are doing this have the following extensions in their email name:,,,,,,,,,,, and many more I'm sure!

The official sources are: our Association, Foodservice Monthly Magazine and TS Leads - when in doubt, call us or trust your gut!

Furthermore, we do not know how they are phishing this info -- we NEVER give our lists out!! Our apologies for the inconvenience!
