From the MATSO Perspective…An Interview with Kelly Kilga, CEM, at Graphic Arts Show Co., Inc (GASC)

IAEE recently sat down with Kelly Kilga, CEM, Director of Operations at Graphic Arts Show Co., Inc (GASC) to learn more about her industry experience as a MATSO (Major American Trade Show Organizer) member. Kelly has been a member of IAEE since October 1999 and currently serves on the MATSO Council and IAEE DC Chapter Nominating Committee.

¿Cómo empezó en la industria de las exposiciones?

I started as an exhibitor. My first trade show was in 1994 at the Hyatt Crystal City and I remember getting yelled at by a union worker for carrying my boxes down the escalator.

¿Qué consejo le daría a un nuevo miembro de la IAEE o a una persona que se una a la comunidad de exposiciones?

Attend your local chapter meetings and get involved. Don’t be afraid to call or email people and ask questions. The people in this industry are very eager to share their knowledge, act as mentors, or just answer specific questions.

¿Cuál es el mayor desafío al dirigir su programa?

The biggest challenge to running my show is facing a changing industry – resulting in lower budgets for exhibitors.

Cuéntanos un dato divertido o una historia que la mayoría de la gente no sabría sobre ti.

I grew up bilingual and I’m fluent in German. I have family in Germany and enjoy visiting them when I can.

Any final thoughts for those involved with IAEE?

IAEE is a great way to find community and support within our industry. Education and networking help me develop my career and IAEE also helps my company in the form of research from CEIR and other information I learn at events and sessions and bring back to the team.
