At NWES, we believe in fostering a strong and supportive community, which is why we recently held the inaugural NWES2023 Exhibitor ReConnect. This event was a celebration and a heartfelt show of appreciation for our incredible exhibitor community. We’ve just wrapped up the event, and the energy and enthusiasm are still reverberating within our team. We extend our deepest thanks to all the exhibitors who joined us, and for those who couldn’t attend, we are excited to share a glimpse of what took place, with hopes that you’ll be part of our future gatherings.


We’re thrilled to announce that the NWES2023 Exhibitor ReConnect has already delivered amazing results. We saw attendees seal two new partnerships and business opportunities as a direct outcome of the event. Can we get a round of applause for that? We encourage all the exhibitors to share their successful collaborations with us. We’d love to hear from you!

NWES2023 ReConnect Nonprofit Partner: The SEARCH Foundation

We also want to give a special mention to Nems Scarim for highlighting our NWES2023 ReConnect Nonprofit Partner, the SEARCH Foundation.

The SEARCH Foundation, as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, provides crucial financial support to individuals in the special events, meetings, and catering industry who are facing life-threatening illnesses or catastrophic occurrences.
