Connecting hospitality buyers and sellers has been paramount to the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association since its founding as a non-profit trade group in 1971. One of the best ways to accomplish this goal was to create a tradeshow. So, in 1974, the OCHMRA launched the Ocean City Spring Trade Expo and it has been a terrific tradition ever since. Currently the Expo features over 400 exhibit booths and welcomes more than 5,000 attendees. They are in high gear to do the same on March 5th and 6th.
