The creative marketplace is competitive. Knowing where to showcase your products; where to find the right buyers; and how to make a big impact while getting the best return on your investment is the key to success. Exhibiting at the NEW Create-n-Connect Conference & Trade Show (formerly the CHA Summer Conference & Trade Show) gives you the opportunity to showcase your newest products, emphasize your brand, meet face-to-face with buyers and participate in exceptional networking events. Participation in this Show trans-lates into valued assets that will serve you year-round.
In early 2004, the two most successful organizations serving the craft and hobby industry, the Hobby Industry Association (HIA) and the Association of Crafts & Creative Industries (ACCI), joined together to form the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA). CHA is now an international, not-for-profit trade association consisting of thousands of member companies engaged in the design, manufacture, distribution and retail sales of products in the nearly $30 billion U.S. craft and hobby industry.
