Stephanie Chavez Earns EXHIBITOR's Certified Trade Show Marketer (CTSM) Designation
1/9/2020
The Trade Group, an award-winning, trade show and experiential design firm, and Exhibitor Media Group, the award-winning leader in trade show and corporate event marketing education, today announced that Stephanie Chavez has joined the ranks of the trade show industry's top talent by earning EXHIBITOR's Certified Trade Show Marketer (CTSM) credentials.

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. Chavez will be recognized at the annual CTSM graduate awards ceremony at EXHIBITORLIVE in 2020.

Stephanie Chavez Chavez, who serves as the Director of Marketing for The Trade Group in Dallas, successfully completed a multitude of CTSM classes classes over the past three years, a 250-question exam and a 124-page thesis (portfolio) in order to achieve certification. She is also one of the few CTSM graduates who work for a supplier (only 10 percent of CTSM designees are employed by suppliers).

According to Malcolm Gilvar, Executive Vice President at The Trade Group, "I am always amazed at what Stephanie is able to accomplish. She runs marketing for three companies, yet she still has the desire and dedication to complete her CTSM. Certainly, the knowledge she has gained through this process will significantly impact the quality and scope of The Trade Group's offerings."

For Chavez, who also leads marketing efforts for The Trade Group's sister companies Event Architecture and Abacus3, earning the CTSM designation was well worth her time and efforts. As she explains, "I am a firm believer that learning should never end. I also enjoy sharing what I learn with coworkers, clients and the students I teach at Texas Woman's University, the University of North Texas and elsewhere. The CTSM designation I've earned through EXHIBITOR Media Group and Northern Illinois University is something I will always treasure."
