Working in the trade show industry is not for the faint of heart. It is for the innovative, the driven, the passionate, the energetic…the road warrior. And when you travel from city to city or rather, from airport to [insert trade show or event venue here] and back to the airport, you sometimes need a break from your trade show management duties to have some fun. You also need support from people with local know-how and a shared passion for the industry.
With that in mind, I connected with our City Manager in Atlanta, Mike Beske, to talk about the common questions he gets from clients and how he responds. He’s worked with trade show management and event management pros since 1982. His accomplished career in the industry, coupled with his southern hospitality was the perfect recipe for a great Q&A below. If you’ve ever been to the South, you know we love a good chat - enjoy!
