I have been working at American Tradeshow for 15 years now. I started as an onsite tech and now in charge of our logistics and inventory division. Before this job I worked in the convention business in another capacity. I have seen it all when it comes to convention services. I have a wife and two children. When I am not working I like to ride my bike along some of our great bike paths in Mandeville, LA. I grew up in downtown New Orleans but as I have gotten older and more of a family man I prefer the quiet suburb life of Mandeville. I do on occasion like to have a staycation in New Orleans. Of course like any other New Orleanian I love the Saints, Pelicans and the LSU tigers Geaux Tigers!!!

I read interview with a vampire in eighth grade and it was one of the few books at that age that I actually really got into

amanda woodSenior Onsite Show Specialist
Amanda graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. While in school, she was a Resident Assistant where she fell in love with event planning. Before joining ATS, she worked in the hospitality industry as a Conventions Coordinator gaining experience and knowledge for all things venue management. She loves being part of the ATS team, working with different groups, and problem solving with creative solutions. As one of her favorite quotes goes, “a jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.” If she isn’t in the office or onsite, she is at home learning a new hobby.
