“One year of strong growth can be written off as an anomaly, but to have the last five shows continuously outperform the previous year to such an extent is an amazing accomplishment that you should be proud of. It takes teamwork, expertise, tremendous attention to detail and even more attention to customer service, all of which you’ve obviously mastered based on the feedback I’ve received from the exhibitors.
“Your professionalism, personalities and experience make it a pleasure to work with you on the show and I truly, truly appreciate it. Your contributions as members of the conference team for AAMI have been a huge factor in the show’s success (both financially and in enhancing AAMI’s image). Signing on with SMS remains one of the best changes we made in the show and I thank you for that.”

“We have outsourced the sales and management of our exposition for over 27 years now. Outsourcing was the best decision we ever made. Our show size has grown by more than 75% while non-dues revenue – exhibitor & sponsor revenue – more than quadrupled. Fortunately, we picked the right company – we’ve had the same core team working with us the entire time. SMS (Show Management Solutions, Inc.) does a terrific job. They’re practically part of our staff.
"In addition to exhibit and sponsorship sales, SMS handles all exhibitor correspondence and contacts, marketing, billing and collections, and on-site management. They also provide us with regular monthly sales and financial reports and other special reports whenever we need them. I feel more in control and on top of the show now than I did before we outsourced to them.
"Our exhibitors are very happy with them, too. They often tell us that of all the shows in which they exhibit, ours is the most organized and well-managed.”
