“I applaud Laura for reaching her goal of becoming a Certified Trade Show Marketer, said Jan Nelson, CTSM gold, executive director of EXHIBITOR’s CTSM program. “Trade show and event marketers are very busy people who often spend much of their time on the road managing their events.

To become CTSM certified, candidates must complete 40 hours of educational sessions, pass a comprehensive final exam and write a professional portfolio documenting how the education was applied on the job to improve trade show programs within the company.
“We’re very proud of Laura’s accomplishments over the duration of her 10-year tenure at Oshkosh Defense,” said John Bryant, president of Oshkosh Defense and executive vice president of Oshkosh Corporation. “At Oshkosh, we consider the trade shows to be central to getting our people and our brand out in front of our customers, and Laura’s leadership of our trade show process over the past decade has been superb. In her time here she has set a new standard of excellence for how trade shows and events are planned and executed.”
Laura L. Cooley will be recognized at the annual CTSM graduate awards ceremony at EXHIBITORLIVE in February 2018.
