Southwest Means Business.

Connect Southwest is an education conference and appointment-only trade show.  Hosted by Connect, the event brings together the most active planners, suppliers and experts in Southwest association meetings and events for a quality packed day of general sessions, roundtables, pre-set appointments and networking.


Connect Southwest is the business marketplace, where RFPs are placed, dates are secured and relationships are developed for future business.







Enhance your skills, interact with industry leaders and drive more business—whether you’re a planner or supplier focused on association and corporate meetings and events in the Southwest.
