H.H. Backer Wins Multiple Awards for Trade Show Excellence

December 3, 2013

Pet industry show organizer H.H. Backer Associates was recently recognized for its outstanding work on its fall trade show, Backer’s Total Pet Expo.

Colette Fairchild, the show’s director, received the Show Manager of the Year award at the Trade Show News Network/The Expo Group Awards in Reno, Nev. on Nov. 2.  The awards organizer also donated $500 to Wounded Warrior on behalf of Fairchild.

H.H. Backer Associates also received “The Art of the Show” award for best website promotion from the International Association of Exhibitions and Events.  The IAEE awards recognize top performances in both trade and public events in a number of categories.

“I’m thrilled to receive the Show Manager of the Year award and have H.H. Backer recognized for our new website,” Fairchild said.  “Our team worked exceptionally hard this year to significantly improve our events and make the attendee and exhibitor experiences much better.”

The company recently rebranded and redesigned the show and added a number of new attendee and exhibitor features.

Backer’s 2014 spring show dates are April 9-11 in Atlantic City, N.J. and the fall show will be held Sept. 19-21 in Rosemont, Ill.
