Each year APHA recognizes the 20 most popular APHA-approved shows, based on their total number of exhibitors.
The largest Paint shows of 2019 remained fairly consistent in their average numbers once again. This year, three international shows made the 2019 top shows list; the Zone 12 European Championships in Kreuth, Germany, once again topped the chart as the No. 1 show of 2019 with 1,481 entries.
Congratulations to these shows and the clubs, show managers and show secretaries who work tirelessly to make them a success for our members year after year. Each of these shows receive promotional Top 10 and Top 20 Show badge logos from APHA to use on event materials. The COVID-19 restrictions have temporarily delayed some shows for 2020, but APHA looks forward to helping clubs, managers and secretaries resume their APHA-approved shows as soon as possible. In the mean time, let’s celebrate the top-performing 2019 shows and dream big about what the future might hold.
