Corcoran Expositions is one of the largest independent trade show organizers in the country, and they’re partnering with the Water Quality Association to assist with exhibit sales and related services for their upcoming trade shows.

“We look forward to working with the Water Quality Association in producing their upcoming trade show,” says Tom Corcoran, founder of the 26-year-old Corcoran Expositions. “We hope to work with them for years to come.”
