About My Company

She was later employed by Smith, Bucklin and Associates working on a multitude of nationwide events including conventions, conferences, board meetings, off-site functions and VIP events.

Among many of her responsibilities, Gail managed show logistics at the Las Vegas Convention Center and Las Vegas Hilton where she worked with hundreds of exhibitors, wrote the CES exhibitor manual, developed an online registration tool for exhibitor appointed contractors, managed the annual CES Exhibitor Workshop, and much more.
