Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports 2023 will once again be a two-day show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania. The 37th show, with Pioneer Pole Buildings Inc. of Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania, for its eighth year as title sponsor, will be held Friday and Saturday, January 21-22.
Exhibit space is now on sale, with exhibitors at the 2020 and 2022 shows having the option to renew their spaces until October 1, 2022.
Although Covid-19 restrictions were only lifted just before the 2022 show, the two-day event was billed as a huge success. Many exhibitors reported doing the same, if not more, during last year’s two-day schedule as they had done for three days in previous years.
“Our goal last year was to deliver a faster and more efficient show for our exhibitors and attendees,” said show manager Dan Sammons. “The two-day format received rave reviews from even the biggest skeptics after the show, we brought people in and out with the same or similar sales, with some exhibitors spending two days less onsite!”
After a year-long diversion, the layout of the show will revert to the same design that has been used since the show moved to the Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania. However, space will always be limited, which makes exhibit space at a premium.
“Last year was a year full of changes, a new floor plan, a new schedule and a whole new concept for the show,” added Sammons. “Upon assessing things it was clear that the schedule was a success, but the floor plan had some minor issues. The easiest solution was to go back to what was working before and we can make adjustments to from there.
Exhibit hours will run from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday. The show will once again include the Ms. Motorsports contest sponsored by Aqua-Duck Water Transport on the Friday evening just before the show closes at 8 p.m. The annual Big-Wheel races and the Little Miss competition, which did not take place last year due to Covid, will return to the program on Saturday afternoon.
The announcement of special exhibitions, autograph guests and seminars will be announced in the coming months. Hotel rooms and other show information are available at motorsportstradeshow.com or by calling the show office at 609-888-3618.
