The ranking is based on net square footage of trade shows in the United States. I&E ranked number 206 of all U.S. events, coming in at just under 62,000 net square feet.  No other fleet industry show made the list.  (By comparison, the #1 US show, the Consumer Electronics Show, takes over the entire city of Las Vegas every January and amasses more than 2.7-million square feet!)
