“Receiving the CTSM Lifetime Achievement Award is much like seeing an exhibit concept brought to fruition with tangible results,” commented Burk, CTSM diamond-level, and the third CTSM graduate, recently retired from King Industries Inc., Norwalk, CT. “It has been gratifying to see the CTSM program grow from its infancy into today’s standard for educational and professional excellence in the dynamic world of trade show and event marketing. Plus, over two decades of growth, I have had the pleasure of sharing a similar vision of what the CTSM program could ultimately be with Gail Hernandez. I am honored to have been recognized alongside this industry dynamo, peer and friend.”
Gail Hernandez was the second individual and first woman to earn CTSM certification.
"I'm thrilled and honored to share the CTSM Lifetime Achievement Award with my friend, Bob Burk,” said Hernandez, CTSM diamond level, marketing events coordinator, The Trade Show Maven, an independent trade show and event professional, Waltham, MA. “This has been an incredible journey, but one I could not have traveled alone. Over the last twenty years, trade show and event marketing has grown from a job to a true profession, and I'm proud to have been a part of its evolution."
“It was exciting to be able to recognize two well-deserving CTSM graduates with the CTSM Lifetime Achievement Award. Gail and Bob made a commitment to lifelong learning in an industry they love, when the CTSM program was in its infancy,” added Jan Nelson, CTSM gold level, executive director of Exhibitor Media Group’s CTSM program. “From the beginning, they recognized the value of industry-specific education, were pioneers in a new certification program, and kept returning to be a part of its growth and recognition.”
