Following up on proposals that have been sent out previously, and research work on finding new companies for our exhibitions is also a major part of what we do.

As a long term employee who has worked for 13 years, I have come a long way. I had started as a logistics coordinator and have been promoted to Office Manager. Every day is a learning experience, with it comes more responsibility. I have become more dependable and proactive in everything that has been tasked to me. I work closely with the management team to ensure productivity and sales for the department, bringing new business to other divisions of the company.

Working with this company is definitely an opportunity to work in a family-owned business, which has a family-oriented atmosphere.
