Trade shows bring us together.
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.
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.
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!
Nation-to-nation, we’re inspiring the next generation of explorers, helping to influence their careers and form lifelong connections.
The “Astronaut Al Worden Endeavour Scholarship,” is an international education program to reward aspiring young space explorers and their teachers with a hands-on astronaut training experience at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center’s renowned Space Camp in Huntsville, AL.
The scholarship, named for the Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot and global advocate for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, invites students and educators in host communities of major international airshows to compete for an all-expenses paid week at Space Camp.
