Leah Woomer attended ExhibitorLive in 2016 and was thrilled to discover that she found a place where there were so many event marketers just like her. She shares how she is the only person in her company who manages over 60 trade shows and internal events and what it feels like to be in a silo. Many event planners and trade show managers find themselves as the sole person in their role. Find out how Leah manages her role and finds a way to stay balanced while traveling in this latest episode of Rock Your Trade Show podcast!
5 Insider Tips For Every Event and Trade Show Marketer
Finding time to celebrate success can be hard when you do so many events. Leah shares a very personal story of how she had a moment at their thought leadership conference and user conference. She describes seeing all the things that were supposed to work together, interact seamlessly. The team at the registration desk were welcoming attendees walking in; the Account Executives were greeting high value customers, executives on stage and she looked around and realized “I made all of this happen”.
Recognizing the impact it had for the company and see the tangible result of what you did is very rewarding. Whether the impact you made includes changing graphics, putting up an exhibit, creating a successful sales forum, you can see a representation of the work you did. Leah describes what it felt like and how it was an incredibly proud moment.
Leah did say to a colleague “Can you believe it- they all showed up they are all here”. It is an incredible feeling and taking it all in is so important. Enjoy those moments, you deserve it!
