This year, AB Show is taking place in Baltimore, Md. — known as "Charm City" — for the first time, but bringing back its well-attended seminars, industry-leading speakers and a multitude of regular events that liven the show floor and enrich the expo experience for facility owners, managers and program directors.
For its 41st year in 2023, AB Show announced earlier this month a new co-location partner, the Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education. In addition to the AORE conference offerings — which will be open to AB attendees — AORE will have a presence on the exhibit hall floor in the brand-new AORE pavilion.
The 2023 AB Show — taking place Nov. 1-4 at the Baltimore Convention Center — will bring back its continuing education offerings, networking opportunities as well as an expo floor full of exhibitors showing the newest products, gear and services in the industry.

A sibling entity to Athletic Business magazine, AB Today, and under the AB Media brand, AB Show knows the unique challenges professionals in athletics face in keeping programs and facilities running. Industry leaders from around the world come to AB Show to offer their knowledge and expertise across more than 125 educational sessions.
Attendees also make time to investigate the more than 250 vendors, architects and other athletics exhibitors available on the expo floor Nov. 2-3 to speak to experts and see and experience what's new within the industry.
Special events offered on the expo floor include the annual free-throw contest, a demo stage showcasing the latest fitness trends, the USAPA’s pickleball court (watch or play), and the early-morning workout Nov. 3 where you can test products and get a sweat on before the crowd hits the floor.
