That’s from a note I just got from a client, Anna Huff of AH Marcom Solutions, who reconnected with us at the 2023 Paris Air Show after a decade-long hiatus.
She’s not wrong. Paris ’23, the first since the pandemic, was an enormously successful show for us and our clients. And when Anna comes back in 2025, my job is to make sure she says that again.
I’ve been with the company for 17 years (that's me on the left during my rookie year), and the constant since my very first day has been our brand of innovation. We never stop creating new ways to deliver a better overall trade show experience for our customers.
For example, at my first Paris Air Show in 2007 we introduced our “Walk the Show” program to help new prospects get acclimated to an event before they invest in exhibiting. We still offer it.
At Le Bourget in 2019, we launched the Astronaut Al Worden Endeavour Scholarship, our marquis workforce advocacy program, to excite young people around the world to pursue careers in STEM-driven industries.
At Paris this year, we added the “Start Me Up” space to spotlight small business and start-ups. It was also the first for our digital Pavilion directory on the Sourcehere.com supply chain networking platform. Sourcehere extends an exhibitor’s presence online before, during, and after the show.
Those are just three reasons — from just one of our nearly 50 shows — that after nearly two decades I love my job more than ever. And why clients like Anna do, too. They hire Kallman to exceed their expectations, and we do!
