VisitPITTSBURGH Named Host for Midsize Show Roundtable Launch

ARLINGTON, VA - Lippman Connects announced today the launch of Midsize Show Roundtable (MSR) to debut on November 17 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA. VisitPITTSBURGH and the David L. Lawrence Convention Center will be the destination hosts.

MSR will be an information-sharing and networking experience for executives, directors, show managers, marketing managers, sales managers, and department managers making decisions for shows with less than 125,000 net square feet of exhibit space. Participants will get to know each other at a Welcome Reception and Dinner on the evening of November 16.

The next morning MSR clients will meet for breakfast and a keynote address by a noted expert. The agenda features closed-door, frank discussions covering management, marketing, sales, and show operations. Sam Lippman will facilitate. Participants receive a copy of the Best Practices Research Report, prepared by Lippman Connects and Evolio Marketing. A complimentary room night and all meals are included.

Andrew Ortale, Chief Sales Officer, VisitPITTSBURGH, said, "I attended Lippman Connects events when I was a show organizer, so I know that midsize shows will greatly benefit from having their own roundtable. VisitPITTSBURGH is supporting MSR because helping midsize shows prosper and grow is our mission as well."

"VisitPITTSBURGH is the ideal host sponsor because Andrew Ortale and his team thoroughly understand the needs and concerns of midsize shows. They will bring extensive knowledge to the MSR experience," added Sam Lippman, President, Lippman Connects.

The complete roster of sponsors also includes Evolio Marketing, EXPOCAD, GES, mdg - a Freeman Company, Naylor Association Solutions, and TSNN.
