Robert Corona Completes Certified Trade Show Marketer Program
Robert Corona has joined the ranks of the trade show industry's top talent by completing EXHIBITOR's Certified Trade Show Marketer (CTSM) accreditation program, the only university-affiliated certification program in the trade show and event marketing industry.
Robert Corona started the certification process in March of 2008 in order to improve his company's trade show marketing strategies. He has successfully accomplished all of the CTSM program requirements: a 28-course core curriculum, a comprehensive examination and acceptance of a Candidate Portfolio. Corona will be recognized in March 2014 as one of the new CTSM graduates at the annual awards ceremony at EXHIBITOR2014.
Corona is a Veteran of the United States Army and has worked in the trade show and event industry for a total of 19 years. He started his professional trade show and event career while working at Namco America in 1994. In 2006, he joined the trade show team at Activant Solutions, now Epicor Software Corporation, and has since then, been promoted to Marketing, Trade Show Manager. His years of experience and recently completed CTSM certification have made him an invaluable member and resource of the marketing and trade show team.
"The CTSM certification program has been one of the most challenging projects I've completed to advance my knowledge of the trade show industry," said Robert Corona, CTSM, Marketing Trade Show Manager for Epicor. "In completing the CTSM program, I have been able to communicate the importance of selecting the right trade shows to attend, how to align the company's core values and goals for each market or trade show and, most importantly, how to measure set goals to report ROI and ROO."
Created in 1992, the Certified Trade Show Marketer (CTSM) program, sponsored by EXHIBITOR, is affiliated with Northern Illinois University Outreach to assure academic standards are met. All CEUs earned in the program are awarded by NIU. EXHIBITOR's CTSM program has over 3,000 professionals enrolled. For more information, go to www.ctsm.com.
