Using the example of fabric trade shows in Italy, this chapter explores the connection between temporary and permanent clusters, explaining how industrial districts have given rise to specific nearby import shows or export shows directly related to the specialization of the regional industry. The chapter also describes how the evolution of and competition among trade shows have led to variation in the development and survival of specific events. This has created dynamic geographies of trade show development and has had an important impact on the visibility of national industries. It is suggested suggest that active trade show organizers have played an important role in overcoming the structural constraints of trade shows by intervening in knowledge control and dissemination mechanisms.

Keywords:   competition among trade shows, dynamic geographies, export shows, fabrics, import shows, knowledge practices, temporary and permanent clusters, trade show organizers
