For the past two-plus years, I’ve been the Exhibits Production Coordinator for the Channel Partners Conference & Expo (it certainly seems longer than that). I’m the one you see running around the Expo Hall floor with the microphone! I’m also the one who tenaciously contacts the exhibitors for company information. All for a good cause — my part of the team effort it takes to produce such an outstanding show for our exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and attendees.
Each year Channel Partners becomes a greater success than the year prior. And in keeping with this historical accomplishment, we’re all working diligently to make this upcoming D.C. show a memorable experience for all.
The show itself will be very exciting with stimulating education tracks and a packed exhibit floor, including both our new and returning exhibitors and sponsors. What will add to this excitement is the location; our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. I can’t wait to return to a city that has so much to offer culturally, historically and in entertainment. I haven’t been to D.C. since my eighth grade graduation trip. No need to mention the time span, let’s just say that it’s been a while.

My favorite Channel Partners Expo Moments: There’s a favorite moment with each show, but my favorite was in Chicago (2004) when I had the opportunity to meet Mike Ditka. For a native Illinoisan, this is a BIG deal!
