您是如何进入展览行业的?

I was hired through Sheraton’s first hotel training program. After four years my client, NADA, hired me to manage their trade show. The rest, you could say, is history…

Education is the most powerful weaponwhich you can use to change the world.(1)

您会给新的 IAEE 成员或加入展览界的人员什么建议?

Learn, participate, network and get involved where ever you can. IAEE chapters and volunteer opportunities are great ways to make lifelong friends and mentors in this industry.

主持节目最大的挑战是什么?为什么?

Staying relevant, on the cutting edge and knowing that you are only as good as your last show. We have to adapt to the rapidly changing technology and integrate that with all of the generations that participate in our convention and show or we will lose them. There is NO room for big mistakes in this fast paced environment.

告诉我们一个大多数人不知道的关于您的有趣事实或故事。

During the Cold War in the 1960s, I mated nuclear weapons with B-52 Bombers in between serving two tours of Vietnam. After returning, I had to work in a machine shop to make ends meet.

What do you think is the biggest benefit of being an IAEE member?

IAEE is the only true representation of the collective trade show industry. It is the real place for the industry education, networking and has the largest trade show executive managers collectively in this field. IAEE is the true source for all of your trade show needs. Clearly if you want to run a top cutting edge trade show of any size, IAEE is the place to be.
