My Book

I published The Trade Show Chronicles in 2017 to help companies exhibiting at trade shows to better prepare for their show and manage every aspect of it.

This book is written as a novel and tells the story of a young sales person organizing his first exhibition booth.

Instead of a traditional business book with checklists and bullet points, you enjoy an entertaining story packed with concrete situations and applicable tips that will change the way you manage trade shows forever!
