The CHAMPS Trade Shows allow for those of us in a niche market to converge in a way that supports each other. This is accomplished by bringing together like-minded people with the same passion and determination in a place that allows businesses to market to each other, share resources and ideas, and make each other better by building each other up instead of tearing each other down. As a business that deals in merchandise that may often be considered counterculture, it can be difficult to navigate your way in the market and fully utilize the resources that are available. Here, small business owners can learn and get advice from experts who have built up their businesses into larger industries.
Since 1999, The CHAMPS Trade Shows have been held annually in Chicago, Orlando, Atlantic City, Denver, and Las Vegas.
