We are a trade show dedicated to the college gift and recognition product stores across the country.
While the focus is the privately owned stores, we host many other types of stores such as college bookstores, lease-operators, Internet sites, and catalog companies. What sets this show apart is the dedication each supplier and buyer brings to the market. It is typically the owners or principals of both entities that attend, making the buying process more personal and focused.
A small show by industry standards, which serves our customers beautifully.
The Spirit Show features product for the fraternity and sorority markets as well as collegiate, cheer, high school, corporate, and many other niche markets which can be found in college towns. The show has a gift, apparel, and custom product focus, so stores can find what they need without having to walk larger shows in hopes of finding a few products.
Personal relationships are the cornerstones of this industry, allowing for more meaningful business exchanges in a casual atmosphere.
We are unique in that the exhibitors are geared to sell directly to the smaller, privately owned stores. Our buyers are looking for new products and services to set them apart from their competition.
- Each year, the Spirit Show welcomes stores from across the country, each with a unique market.
We are an order-writing and marketing show, held once a year.
Exhibitors are prepared to take orders on-site for fall delivery. Buyers' needs vary based on their school and either write orders at the show (or within a two week window) or wait until the next semester.

Not just a Greek show!
Our storeowners are savvy business owners, carrying a product mix that best suits their individual market’s needs. The Spirit Show draws stores in that may cater to sports teams, corporate clients, the beauty industry, fine gifts and home furnishings, churches, weddings, high schools, and more. We strongly encourage our exhibitors to bring everything they carry, including the kitchen sink, if you sell it. You just never know when a customer may need the exact non-Greek item you have in your line!
