Exhibitor Media Group Recognizes Thirty-Four CTSMs at EXHIBITORLIVE
Often Equated to Graduate Degree in Event Marketing; Awarded in Affiliation with Northern Illinois University Outreach
As an early CTSM recipient myself, I am thrilled to see that 472 CTSM certificates have been earned since the program’s inception." Jan Nelson, CTSM gold level, executive director, Exhibitor Media Group’s CTSM program
Exhibitor Media Group, the award-winning leader in trade show and corporate event marketing education, announced that 34 Certified Trade Show Marketer (CTSM) recipients were officially recognized for achieving certification over the last year. The ceremony took place at an exclusive CTSM graduate dinner and awards ceremony during EXHIBITORLIVE, the smart ideas conference for exhibit and event marketers, which took place last week.
Often equated to a graduate degree in event marketing, the CTSM designation is awarded by EXHIBITOR in affiliation with Northern Illinois University Outreach and reflects adherence to the highest educational standards of trade show and event marketing. This year’s combined graduates earned CTSM designation and bronze, silver, gold and diamond level certifications.
“As an early CTSM recipient myself, I am thrilled to see that 472 CTSM certificates have been earned since the program’s inception,” commented Jan Nelson, CTSM gold level, executive director, Exhibitor Media Group’s CTSM program. “I fully anticipate exceeding the 500-mark over the next year.”
“I joined the trade show community with no experience and no on-site mentor,” commented new CTSM Julie Woodsum. “The EXHIBITOR community was my saving grace, and has been my right hand ever since.”
This year’s group of recipients includes the largest percentage of industry suppliers to earn CTSM designation.
“It’s gratifying to see the level of commitment industry suppliers are giving to the CTSM program,” added Nelson. “They have told me that this high level of education clearly translates to more strategic customer service and deeper consultative relationships.”
