Here's why trade show exhibitors, marketing & sales professionals choose my services: • They're frustrated with expenses & labor at trade shows and this process takes away their valuable time from sales & marketing efforts. I eliminate those headaches with a full-circle, flat-rate service. • Their exhibits are out of date or ineffective and I provide cutting-edge, unique & affordable exhibits & rentals of all sizes (the largest island to inlines, portables & table tops). • They can't figure out how to effectively plan for a successful trade show, measure results and/or justify their trade show program. I provide them with the best results to measure & report. Their booth staffers need training on the best ways to qualify & capture leads. Here's what I'm skilled at, which helps my clients achieve their goals: • Managing multiple projects simultaneously with a high attention to detail & outstanding communication internally & externally. • Collaborating in a fast-paced team environment with multiple departments, multiple clients & multiple stakeholders. • Understanding customer's & prospect's business & exhibit requirements in order to match company’s resources to provide solutions for their trade show, event and marketing needs to key decision makers. Results that I'm proud of during our previous affiliation with Skyline Exhibits: • Recognized by company President for ranking #1 in sales volume in the national market in August 2016. • Ranked in the top 5% of our Global Market among all Skyline reps in 2014, 2015 & 2016. • Ranked #1 Global Sales Leader for April 2014 (out of approx. 487 total reps world wide). • Recognized by Corporate VP for ranking Top 5 in sales volume in the national market for the months of September 2007, February 2010, April 2010 & May 2010. • I continually develop new business, through a diverse prospecting plan, independent lead generation activity & database marketing.
