Jefferson Davis, President of Competitive Edge, an exhibitor education, consulting and training firm, will present and facilitate the new Exhibitor Storm Surge program Feb. 10 during BrandStorm 2020 in Austin, Texas.
A consultant, trainer, speaker and author with 33 years of exhibiting experience, Davis has been involved in the execution of more than 200 tradeshows.
“Exhibiting represents a significant investment of human and financial capital,” United Fresh Vice President of Convention & Industry Collaboration John Toner said. “When executed properly, your exhibiting program should deliver measurable value beyond cost. We’re excited to offer exhibiting education through the new Exhibitor Storm Surge, supporting business growth across the fresh produce supply chain.”
In 1988, Davis began researching how to make trade shows more productive and profitable. In 1991, he launched Competitive Edge providing exhibitors with consulting and training services to help improve exhibiting productivity and ROI. His clients have generated over $800 million in combined exhibiting results.
During the new Exhibitor Storm Surge – an optional program for BrandStorm registrants – attendees will spend the afternoon participating in this hands-on training designed to address critical exhibiting success factors and ways to improve their trade show performance and results. Hear from a panel of United Fresh Convention & Expo exhibitors and learn their strategies for success, followed by a panel of United Fresh attendees who will share their buyer-approach to attending trade shows.
At the conclusion of the Exhibitor Storm Surge, attendees will join all other BrandStorm registrants for the event’s Welcome Reception.
