Stefanie Maio Awarded Certified Trade Show Marketer (CTSM) Designation
Stefanie Maio 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.
Stefanie started the certification process in order to improve her company's trade show marketing strategies. She has successfully accomplished all of the CTSM program requirements: a 28-course core curriculum, a comprehensive examination and acceptance of a Candidate Portfolio where she featured the rebranding of efi Sports Medicine to Total Gym through the IHRSA 2011 Convention and Trade Show. Stefanie will be recognized on March 17, 2013 as one of the new CTSM graduates at the annual awards ceremony at EXHIBITOR2013 in Las Vegas, NV.
Stefanie commenced her career in the fitness industry with StairMaster Canada in 1993 after graduating from York University. She developed a passion for events and trade shows through her experiences at TRC Fitness and STOTT PILATES. In 2006, she made a life changing decision to say "hello" and joined Total Gym where she now oversees the events and education departments.
"By completing her CTSM program, Stefanie displayed her ongoing commitment to excellence and continuous improvement for herself and for Total Gym. We are proud of the work she has done to receive this certification honoring her efforts in strategizing, planning, and executing world class events," said Randy Bergstedt, COO of Total Gym.
