About

What, When, Why, Where, How???

I am a trade show, conference, event enthusiast.  I believe in face-to-face communication; and that this type of mass interaction brings out the most innovative ideas.

The gathering of minds and personalities is an incredible feat in itself as there are so many facets to pulling it all together and make it work; and then tear it all down and make it happen somewhere else!

I love it, it is exciting and definitely allows me to get my creative fix, and use skills I never knew I had, until that very second when something doesn’t go as planned.

This gypsy is always looking to help bring out the magic in tradeshows, technical conferences, corporate events and have had 15 years of experience doing so, for large OEMs to small companies, I can help you avoid the pitfalls and generate innovative ideas to maximize your ROI.

      Thank you Michelle – there is definitely a lineage of wisdom from making sure you have a tape gun at all times, to having staff check on each other to make sure they get from point A to point B without being accosted by tradeshow revelers or locked in the storage area! Yes, it happens!

    I just discovered your blog yesterday and I want you to know that I just love, love, LOVE it! I’ve actually though of myself as a traveling gypsy at times. It’s so refreshing to know there are other trade show gypsys out there that can relate to the many trials and errors I’ve gone through over the last 3 years. I coordinate about 25-30 shows a year and about 80% of them are solo gigs for me. The most important lesson I’ve learned is ALWAYS have a ‘Plan B’ (and sometimes C, D, E, and F!) . Keep the great advice and stories coming. I’m looking forward to your next post!
