Jana Hallford Earns EXHIBITOR's Diamond Level CTSM Award
Exhibitor Media Group, the award-winning leader in trade show and corporate event marketing education, announced today that Jana Hallford, marketing director/executive producer, Swords & Circuitry Studios, San Diego, has achieved Certified Trade Show Marketer (CTSM) diamond level certification.
"I am thrilled to award Jana with CTSM diamond level credentials," commented Jan Nelson, CTSM gold level, executive director, Exhibitor Media Group's CTSM program. "Since earning her CTSM designation in 2004, Jana has been actively involved in continuing education and in supporting the CTSM program and the industry as a whole. Her professional contributions have been many, especially in the area of paying-it-forward by serving as portfolio development advisor to many CTSM candidates. This year alone, she attended the CTSM New Graduate and Alumni Dinner and Awards Ceremony to personally congratulate three of her advisees as they received their credentials as Certified Trade Show Marketers."
"Throughout my CTSM journey, I've developed a wonderful professional network," said Hallford. "Instructors have become mentors, and colleagues have become friends, but the value of the program goes far beyond contacts. I've become part of a supportive, enriching community that has helped me grow. By associating with people who are the best in the business, I've found needed inspiration, gained a better, ever-evolving view of the big picture, and pushed myself to do more."
The CTSM designation is awarded by EXHIBITOR in affiliation with Northern Illinois University Outreach and reflects adherence to the highest educational standards of trade show and event marketing. CTSM graduates can continue on to earn bronze, silver, gold and diamond level certifications.
