Tom Kallman
President and CEO

Trade shows bring us together.

At events around the world, Kallman connects you by delivering more of what you exhibit for: opportunities, relationships and impact.

Since my dad, Jerry Kallman, Sr. founded the company in 1963, we’ve built our business as an advocate and partner for America’s global export interests. Today, whether you’re a first-time exhibitor or a perennial fixture in the USA Partnership Pavilion, a Creative Services or Partnership Chalet client, exhibit with confidence that you have our professional attention to every detail of your show presence, and personal commitment to your on-site success.

Nation-to-nation, people-to-people

The success of the events we represent — some for more than two decades! — is a direct reflection of each host nation's pride in welcoming industry leaders year after year. Regional and worldwide recognition of these shows is demonstrated by the participation of senior government and military officials, industry thought-leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs, buyers and influencers, media observers, educators, and students.

All that attention affirms the investments local communities make in making organizers like us — and exhibitors like you — feel welcomed and appreciated. And long after a show has ended, the direct financial impact of the event, plus the ongoing business operations of host facilities and industry operations in-country continue to produce sustained economic benefits.

In a spirit of partnership — indeed, friendship — Kallman Worldwide recognizes the collective effort by giving back. Nation-to-nation, as a grateful representative of the United States of America, and people-to-people, as a responsible global citizen, we give back to local institutions that further industry's ambitions, and service organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life in our host communities.

Industry goodwill

As the official U.S. representative of international trade exhibitions, Kallman finds inspiration in the proud history and timeless traditions of global trade. On behalf of our country and our exhibitors, Kallman's goodwill presentations to host leaders celebrate our nations' shared values, and commemorate the big events that bring us closer.

Community outreach

During the event "Public Days," Kallman organizes extracurricular activities to help local folks and community groups, particularly those that serve kids and families, experience iconic events from the inside, learn more about America — and maybe even meet an astronaut! It's our way of saying, "Thank you," to all of the paid professionals, volunteers, and proud citizens who contribute to a show's success. And who knows? The experiences we create today may even inspire tomorrow's industry pioneers!
