Destination Stay

By holding the shows in vacation destinations, the Keystone Big Shows are truly an experience. Our BIG Show East is held in Washington, DC at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center which is just a quick ride away from the museums and historical monuments. An easily walkable city, Washington DC is the consummate host, offering a dynamic mix of the sights, tastes and sounds that make up American History. The BIG Show West is held at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center with a spectacular hotel overlooking beautiful Lake Grapevine and brimming with authentic Texas style and hospitality.


New Products Reception

New Product Reception

The night before the show, we open up our doors to the New Products Showcase and invite suppliers and customers to preview. This is a great opportunity to spark up relationships with suppliers and can also give you a jump start on planning your day at the show.

Overflowing with finger food and cocktails, the event is kicked off with a casual-dress reception. Prizes and giveaways are revealed and many plan their itinerary for the next day. Held from 6:00pm to 8:00pm this is an event you don’t want to miss.

Door Prizes

What’s a show without prizes? Everyone who registers for the Keystone Big Shows receives door prize tickets. All you have to do is put your tickets in the door prize drum at the show for your chance to win!

Periodic door prize drawings will be made throughout the day and announced on the public announcement system. We will also have a monitor by the drum displaying the winning numbers. Come back to the door prize area before you leave the show to match your numbers and claim your prize(s).


Supplier Interaction

One-On-One Interaction

Interact directly with hundreds of suppliers and factory representatives that have the knowledge to help you succeed in just about any segment within the automotive aftermarket.

Our suppliers come to the BIG Shows powered to help you grow your business. If you have questions on how to sell their product, now is THE time to ask, grab updated catalogs and discuss new products, displays or product order suggestions.


Product Demo

Product Demonstrations

You will find product demonstrations throughout the show floor. See how things work and talk to the experts that know how they are built.

From Traxxas jumping their trucks in the air to Edelbrock performing a full supercharger install, you are sure to learn some tricks while having a blast doing it.

Catalog Shipment

FREE Supplier Catalog & Swag Shipment

One of the pains of collecting the information you need is getting it back to your store. Those boxes full of catalogs, posters and other items can be heavy, take up a lot of room in your luggage and are expensive to ship. We have eliminated the worry by offering you the option to ship your supplier catalogs and swag directly to your store on our truck, FREE of charge.


In Show Happy Hour

During Show Happy Hour

After a long day on the show floor, have a cold beverage on us. During the last hour of each show there are several locations throughout the floor that offer free beverages.

Several booths placed throughout the show floor, participate in our During Show Happy Hour. Stop by to pick up a cold beverage to celebrate the final hour of a successful show. Location and schedule will be available the day of the show in the Show Guide handed out during registration.
